Rayon is one of the most versatile fabrics, but it remains a mystery. This is in part due to its remarkable ability to change shape – not just in the true sense of the word, but also in terms of mimicking other fabrics. Rayon is known to take on the properties of silk, cotton, wool, and others and can be used in almost any type of clothing. This can make it difficult to determine exactly what it is, how to wash it, and what type of weather it is best for. Read on to find out everything you need to know about rayon to improve your familiarity with this ubiquitous fabric.
In a nutshell, Rayon is a fabric made from purified cellulose fibersthat are typical made from cellulose. Although rayon is made from natural materials, it requires certain chemicals regarded as a semi-synthetic fabric.
One of the most common types of rayon is viscose rayon, which has a lot in common with cotton. It's breathable, moisture-wicking, and a popular choice for casual and sportswear. It is also shown in dresses, blouses, and outerwear. Secondary rayon types include modal rayon (usually made from beech) and lyocell (from jeans to shirts).
Washing rayon is a little more important. Rayon is often blended with other fabrics (like polyester and cotton), so washing instructions can vary significantly. While its texture and versatility make it an ideal choice for a range of garments, Rayon is not a hard-wearing fabric and normal machine washing can cause it to stretch, shrink, or bleed on other clothing. For this reason, most of the experts recommend washing your hands with rayon. However, always read the instructions on the care label beforehand.
