What fabric is chiffon
The name of chiffon comes from the sound and meaning of French CHIFFE, which means light and transparent fabric. It is a spinning product among silk products. The fabric is light, transparent, soft and elegant. The scientific name of "Chiffon" is "Georgette"-----Georgette, also known as Georgette crepe, is a silk fabric woven with strong twist crepe warps and crepe wefts. The name of georgette comes from France (georgette). The lightness, weight, thickness, thinness, transparency, and crepe effect of the georgette mainly depend on the thickness of the thread, the number of combinations, the twist, and the density of warp and weft. The warp and weft adopt two kinds of strong twist yarns with different twist directions, S twist and Z twist. They are arranged alternately according to 2S and 2Z (two left and two right) and are interwoven with a plain weave. The warp and weft density of the fabric is very small. After scouring, the green silk shrinks and crepes due to the untwisting effect of the silk thread, forming a georgette with uniform wrinkles and loose structure on the silk surface.
According to the raw materials used, chiffon can be divided into silk georgette, rayon georgette, polyester georgette and interwoven georgette. If the weft uses only one twist direction, the georgette woven is called normal-fiber georgette, and normal-fiber georgette shows warp Irregular wrinkles in the shape of bumps and pleats.
