I don't know if I ever slept on bed sheets made of bamboo viscose. Growing up we bought the cheapest sheets we could find figuring it would do the job. My gf has been following this website https://ownbamboo.com and they talk about how luxuriously bamboo sheets feel on your skin and compare different name brand sets. I guess there is a name brand Purple that she is taking a liking too and I am wondering if any members have experienced the fabric or have bought those type of sheets? Are they worth the money? Is the company trustworthy? Are they what is advertised? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
So I was just ironing a vinyl transfer onto a blue 95% viscose 5% spandex nightgown for a craft project. There are spots where the iron clearly lightened fabric. Some of the spots are in the shape of the metal below my thin ironing pad (which I’ll be replacing asap). It’s not the biggest deal in the world but I’m curious scientifically how that could have happened. The fabric is not melted or scorched...it literally as if the fabric was bleached in parts. I tried googling and couldn’t find the answer so I’m turning to Reddit. If anything google said ironing can’t fade fabric. Can dye be of such a poor quality that heat somehow removes it? (The heat was probably a little too high, but for the transfer, I probably would have needed to leave the iron on longer if the heat was lower. Also note that the transfer took very well and these are spots/lines around it where the edges of the iron were).
I suspect there must be a physical term for that moment when a viscose fluid has gathered so much mass that it reaches critical mass when the energy of the drop is stronger than the surface tension and viscosity or cohesion of the fluid. Like one fell swoop or splurge or splodge is all I can think of, but I am looking for the fancy technical term that would appear in a science book.
Looking for some assistance here - I am after some summer shirts - is anyone aware of any retailers that sell short sleeve button up shirts in viscose or rayon - without the crazy/decorative/party prints? & instead plain black/navy/white?
I have seen these from YD - however, I am not keen on the cuban collar and YD as a brand:
Please let me know if you're aware of any :)
Budget $80-$100 but open to higher suggestions if quality/longevity is there
