Hello, this is Matsui.
This is the second post.
Recently, the weather is unstable due to a large typhoon and the timing to wash the laundry
.I’ve been thinking about something like a housewife when it’s difficult.
Well, what I’m going to talk about this time is
The material that is most active in summer because summer is finally in production
I would like to talk a little about “hemp”.
There are two main types of hemp for clothing purposes.
Linen and ramie.
Let’s briefly review the difference between the two.
★ Fiber length
Linen = thin and short
Ramie = thick and long
★ Thread strength
Ramie = said to be the strongest of all natural fibers
Linen=worse than Ramie.
★ Texture / Texture
Ramie is more elastic than linen and his linen is relatively supple
★ Fiber whiteness
Lamy = strong whiteness and gloss
Linen = yellowish hue, gloss is second only to ramie
It looks like the above
In addition to the above, as the main feature of hemp
There is also a big feature that when it gets wet with water, the strength increases by 60% compared to when it dries.
Conversely, it also means that the yarn strength is weak when it is dried.
In the winter when making spring and summer products
It is often said that hemp yarn is difficult to knit because of this.
By the way,
The old Nitter used to knit hemp yarn the night before
Put hemp corn in the bathroom
A device such as burning a bath kettle with the lid removed to absorb moisture all night
It seems that he did.
Even now, I sometimes see similar ideas.
Hemp is a material that is a little quirky to handle,
Its texture, appearance, and atmosphere have a unique atmosphere that other materials do not have.
I also like this material.
For summer coordination that tends to be simple, knowing its characteristics well
I definitely want to make wonderful products that play a role.
