Wrinkle Free Clothes FAQS
Now that you have reliable advice about this season's best wrinkle free travel clothes, let’s take a deeper look. Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions:
What Makes Fabric Wrinkle Free?
There are a few factors that contribute to whether fabric will wrinkle. Usually, it’s a combination of weight, weave, composition, and treatment that determine if a fabric has any wrinkle resistance. In addition, clothes marketed as wrinkle free should go through testing to determine their level of resistance.
It’s said that heavier fabrics like cashmere tend to be naturally more wrinkle resistant, as well as synthetic materials such as polyester. However, it’s possible to get a more lightweight fabric like cotton or linen to wrinkle less. The weave, for example, should be much more complex to create a tighter bond, therefore giving the garment less chance to wrinkle.
However, a more complex weave could mean a rougher hand feel. That’s why it’s extremely important to use high quality cotton or linen. Often, the treatment process will also help add softness to the wrinkle free fabric.
Are Wrinkle Free and No Iron the Same Thing?
The short answer: it depends! There’s a range to a garment’s wrinkle resistance, so wrinkle free doesn’t always mean you don’t have to iron it. The benefit of many wrinkle free shirts is they stay pristine while you wear them and don't need ironing after being washed and dried in the machine.
What Makes Fabric Wrinkle?
Most fabrics wrinkle with heat and water. A garment can become creased and misshapen when it’s washed and dried. Once it cools down, the fabric forms new bonds in different shapes, causing wrinkles or dents.
Can You Iron a No Iron™ Shirt?
The simple answer: yes! Just because you don’t have to doesn’t mean you can’t.
