The smaller scarf is called silk scarf, mainly around the neck; the larger scarf is called shawl, mainly on the shoulder. There is no clear standard of size and shape between the two, but there is a rough difference in size and function.
Many people still think that scarves are mainly used to keep warm, but in fact they are not. If this is not the case, women in the South have no relationship with scarves. In fact, the decorative function of the scarf is super. Because of its large face value and rich color, it deserves to be the king of accessories.
If you want to make a good match of scarves, the most important thing is not how to learn the methods and skills, but to buy, buy what suits you.
So let me first look at some elements that should be paid attention to when choosing a scarf.
3. Patterns, etc.
Others have medium-thickness styles between the two, mainly cotton and hemp.
In artificial fibers, polyester fibers are mostly silk-like and acrylic fibers are mostly wool-like.
As for viscose and rayon, which belong to regenerated fibers, they are semi-made into lighter and sagging styles. Of course, there are many blended materials. Silk scarves are mainly made of silk, but because of the different textile methods, texture is also very different.
The most common four-limb scarves are twill weaving: it is a very strong silk fabric, not easy to deform, and not easy to crochet.
But the reason for its high cost goes far beyond that. Advantages: Strong shortcomings: the thicker the harder the drop feeling is not strong, it is not good to tie knots.
Planar weaving: This kind of silk is mostly thin, but still opaque, slippery and glossy, so many scarves are made of this kind of fabric. Advantages: Very thin and sagging.
Qun Li just started the silk scarf can start from such a scarf, in making silk scarf shape also better grasp.
Chiffon is a very thin, light fabric with a smooth surface and a translucent appearance. Similar to it is the Georgette yarn, we must pay attention to avoid being fooled. The surface of georgette yarn is rough, there are obvious sand holes, and chiffon feel is more delicate and high-grade, but the silk scarves made of these two kinds of fabrics are very similar in nature. Their advantages are: elegant and moving, good sagging feeling, and the disadvantage is that they are translucent, and some silk textures are not suitable for the shape of clothing. Because the underwear inside will be exposed, it looks too sexy. Be careful when using it, and it's easy to crochet. But if you want to highlight is sexy, that's a good choice. Shajuan: refers to the special thin yarn silk fabrics, meticulous Eugene yarn, court yarn and cicada wing yarn all belong to the same kind of material.
Features: Fluffy, rigid, translucent, very light and transparent, it looks more dreamy, shortcomings: it must use a special system to show its taste. Me: Wool: Wool products have always been the main material of large shawls and thick scarves due to their warmth retention characteristics, among which wool products account for a high proportion.
Pashmina means Persian wool, which is more advanced and softer than cashmere. Tibetan antelope cashmere (shahtoosh), a Persian word for the king's pleasure, can imagine how advanced it is. It comes from Tibetan antelope on the Tibetan plateau. It feels very fine and silky. The large shawl made can be passed through a ring. Therefore, it is also called "ring shawl" and the top-grade shawl starts at millions.
Because Tibetan antelope cashmere is very thin and very short, and the textile technology is very difficult, only a few masters have the ability to deal with such material. Rare materials and fine processing technology make its price unattainable. As Tibetan antelopes are becoming scarce, they are banned in many countries. So it doesn't matter if we can't afford it, because the country doesn't allow it to be sold.
Alpaca velvet Alpaca is also a very high-grade fabric. Alpaca grows in the Andean mountains of South America. Alpaca can resist sunlight radiation. Its fibers are very fine and almost no needle hair. It doesn't want to tingle most other animal fibers.
Features: Warm, silky luster, very popular with high-end consumers.
Yak velvet is a special kind of home-made textile made in traditional Tibet.
The only disadvantage is that it's heavier. A thick velvet knitted scarf weighs a lot. Cotton: Cotton scarves have not always been the mainstream scarf fabrics. Most of the scarves made of cotton are more leisure style. Some are made of ordinary cotton fabrics after printing and dyeing. Others are made of cotton fabrics similar to T-kapok fabrics to make more leisure scarves.
In recent years, the design of this kind of leisure scarf has become more and more bold, using a lot of different materials to stitch together, colorful, a upper body, a strong sense of mixing immediately presented, very popular with young people.
Linen: Linen scarf is also less material. The advantage of linen fabric is cool and breathable. The disadvantage is poor skin affinity, a little itchy, and easy to wrinkle.
But it can present a special natural flavor, especially loved by the majority of Europeans, they do not think the linen wrinkles are beautiful, but feel that this kind of fold appears more simple with nature. Hemp scarves or shawls are mostly summer accessories, but a few can be used in spring and autumn.
Regenerated fibers (or viscose fibers): These are natural plants, which are produced after chemical treatment. Among them, artificial cotton and rayon are the oldest and most widely used regenerated fibers. They are characterized by soft, comfortable and excellent sagging.
The new generation of regenerated fibers, including Modal, Tencel and Laiser, are well known and suitable fabrics.
The scarves made of this kind of fibers are all soft and drooping. They are very suitable for various shapes.
Leather: Of course, fur is an indispensable material for winter scarves, but in recent years, environmentalists have advocated that there is no harm without buying and selling. Chemical fibers: Although chemical fibers are not very good scarf fabrics, but because of their wide use, it is still necessary to understand that polyester is the most widely used chemical fibers, polyester can be spun into various silk fabrics, such as polyester Chiffon is very light, thin and soft, long is made into long silk scarves, but the shortcomings are too light, sagging feeling is not good.
Polyester yarn is very similar to silk satin. It has a good gloss and is often made into towels of different sizes. However, the disadvantage of polyester yarn is that it is a little stiff and difficult to form beautiful pendant lines.
