What is acrylic?

Acrylic is a synthetic fiber made from petroleum-derived acrylonitrile. Acrylic is considered one of the "three major synthetic fibers" along with polyester and nylon, which are also synthetic fibers.

Because it is a voluminous material among synthetic fibers, it is fluffy, soft and has excellent elasticity. In addition, it does not have the prickly feel of wool, so it can be used safely by people with sensitive skin and children.

In addition, by including a lot of air in the fiber, it is a material with excellent heat retention .

In addition, it is a material that does not easily wrinkle due to the elasticity of the fibers . It also has excellent shape recovery power, so if there are some wrinkles, it can be restored by soaking it with water.

In addition, it is a material with excellent dyeability compared to other synthetic fibers. Therefore, it is characterized by very beautiful coloring. It also has excellent color fading resistance, so it is also resistant to sunburn and color fading.
