What is ACRYL?

All of us are familiar with time proven and loved yarn for knitting from wool, cotton or flax. But when you buy a new knit item in the store, for example dress , jumper or cardigan , we are increasingly seeing information on the label a mixed composition of threads, for example 80% wool / 20% acrylic. What is acrylic ?

 To create acrylic yarn, natural gas is used. Acrylic is the best fiber, similar to wool, since it is the closest to it by its properties. Due to its qualities, acrylic is even called "artificial wool" .

In knitting yarn, the acrylic content can range from 100% to 5%. A yarn made of acrylic or having it in the composition is perfectly suitable for knitting on household and industrial knitting machines.

Acrylic has a number of properties that make its use relevant. First of all, acrylic is very durable, resistant to sunlight, which protects yarn from fading. Products that contain quality acrylic, do not "fall", do not "sit down" after washing. In addition, acrylic gives the product lightness and warmth. Many people can not wear 100% woolen things because they "bite". Acrylic yarn is very soft and tender, there is no such problem for it. To the unique properties of acrylic is also attributed to the fact that its fibers are perfectly amenable to coloring, this allows manufacturers to present yarn of saturated and various colors in today's market.

It should be remembered that acrylic is 100% non-natural material. Accordingly, its disadvantage is low hygroscopicity. Products made of acrylic are electrified, so when washing it is desirable to use special rinse.

Many are wondering if acrylic causes an allergy. Note that acrylic often knits children's clothes, because natural materials are more likely to cause a strong allergic reaction.

Concerning the care of things from acrylic, it should be noted that acrylic is not recommended to steam. You can also erase a thing from acrylic even in a washing machine using the "hand wash" mode, without fear of losing its appearance. If you wash your hands - in cold water. Whitening, squeezing and twisting is not recommended. Products made of acrylic will not become a "delicacy" for moths, unlike wool or other natural types of yarn. Dry the product of acrylic on a flat surface, giving a pre-form.
