All about cotton elastane
Many of our items are made from 100% cotton or a combination of, for example, cotton and polyester, but a small part of our collection consists of cotton elastane. But what exactly is cotton elastane?
Cotton elastane is a combination of mostly cotton and a small amount of elastane which creates a fine, soft material. The properties of cotton are well known: breathable, moisture-regulating and super soft, but what are the properties of elastane? Elastane is a synthetic fibre with the following characteristics: it is super elasticated and stretchy, it retains its original shape, it is strong and durable, and it is lightweight. A small amount of elastane quickly creates a wonderful stretchability in the cotton.
Thus, an item made from cotton elastane is a comfortable choice. In addition, you do not need to iron items of cotton elastane so often. So, do you wear a lot of shirts? Give yourself some new cotton elastane shirts as a gift. Win-win!
