Rayon Blend Yarn
Although normally thought to be a synthetic fiber, rayon is actually a natural fiber derived from wood pulp. Like cotton, rayon is a cellulose fiber, meaning its cell structure is hollow. This hollow cell structure creates the superior absorbent properties of this fiber. The processing of the wood pulp purifies the fiber and removes natural protective oils, allowing the cells to quickly absorb liquid without the break-in requirement associated with cotton fibers.
The absorbent properties make rayon blend yarns ideal for wet mopping; however, they reach saturation levels quickly and do not offer the same wipe-dry performance as cotton blends. Rayon blend yarns are bright and clean because they do not contain plant residue visible in cotton blend yarns. Although rayon blend yarns launder well, special attention should be given to water and drying temperature, as excessive temperatures can result in yarn shrinkage and reduce product life.
The 700004 series yarn is available in white, blue, and green. The shading of these yarns is achieved by blending in colorfast solution-dyed recycled PET.
