Triacetate Fibers

Triacetate fiber is sometimes subject to static cling, but exhibits several favorable qualities. The material is shrink, stain, and wrinkle resistant, and may be machine or hand washed. It also displays excellent drapeability and provides exceptional pleat retention. Due to its no-fuss care requirements and its shape retention capabilities, triacetate fiber is frequently found in blouses, skirts, pants, and special occasion apparel, as well as draperies and upholstery.
