fabric description
The main ingredient used in the manufacture of polyester is ethylene. Polyester is a category of polymers that contain a chain of synthetic repeating units. Combining two or more of these units together creates a larger unit whose structure continues throughout its length. Because of this polymer chain, polyester fibers can be very long and incredibly strong. The polyester material is then drawn out into a microfilament (typical: 1/5 the diameter of a human hair). At this point, the material shape is similar to common thread and multiple strands (threats) can be twisted together to form a longer yarn. From there the yarns are woven in much the same way as common organic materials. Polyester dries faster than its material relative, nylon, and has low water absorbency.
