Are you a Garment, Home Furnishings or an Accessories manufacturer who wants to know more about the fabric called RAYON? If yes, then do watch out this video till end. Hello, this is Tushar from Charu Creation Pvt Ltd, a fashion fabric company at Nehru Place, New Delhi. So friends, first of all, what is Rayon? Rayon is a fabric made from purified cellulose fibres, which are typically created from wood pulp. Though rayon is derived from natural materials, it requires certain chemicals, so it’s considered to be a semi-synthetic fabric.

There are many types of Rayon fabrics but in this video I will discuss the 3 most important types of rayon. So, the first type of Rayon Fabric is called Viscose. It was first developed in 1855 and patented in 1894. The name Viscose comes from the process that’s used to make it; at one stage, rayon is a viscous, honey-like liquid that later settles into a solid form. So viscose is really soft and has a silken touch. This fabric is used for most applications for which cotton is used.

Whether it’s dresses, shirts, or pants, rayon is used to make a wide variety of different articles of clothing, and this fabric may also be used to make household items like towels, washcloths, or tablecloths. But it has some shortcomings too. It is really weak when wet. Fabric experts recommend that one should give rayon clothes a gentle hand wash with a mild detergent.

It is advisable to use cold water for washing rayon. Even dry cleaning of the garments made out of viscose is recommended. The second type of rayon is called HWM or High Wet Modulus. It is popularly known by the name of Modal. This type of rayon was particularly developed to concur the weakness of Viscose fabric which becomes weak on being wet. Modal was developed in Japan in 1951.

So like Viscose, it is extremely soft but unlike viscose it is strong even when it is wet. Modal rayon is generally more lightweight than viscose rayon, and it is also more breathable, which has prompted this fabric’s popularity in sportswear. Modal rayon wicks sweat effectively, it is easy to clean, and it is also surprisingly durable and long-lasting. This type of rayon is also a popular fabric for bed sheets due to its high moisture wicking ability.

It is common to see this fabric used for yoga pants, bike shorts, and even swimwear. As compared to cotton, modal rayon is highly resistant to pilling. The third type of Rayon is called Lyocell. It is popularly known by a brand called Tencel. So lyocell is made out of cellulose extracted from Eucalyptus trees. Originally developed in 1972, lyocell burst into popularity in the late Nineties.

Lyocell fabric is very strong whether it is wet or dry and very resistant to pilling. It’s unique features are a) it absorbs moisture very quickly and releases it into the atmosphere b) it is odour resistant. It is used to make all types of clothings but it is very popular in sportswear. Furthermore, Lyocell is quickly becoming a favorite fabric for medical dressings. This fabric’s high absorbency ability also makes it an ideal material to use in medical applications.
