Cupro (originally cuprammonium rayon) is known, just like cotton, as a breathing fabric. Technically, it’s cotton, but from another part of the plant. It drapes beautifully and has the quality to feel like silk on your skin. This is why the textile is known as artificial silk or at least a resemblance of it. It owns some great features. It also possesses low shrinkage characteristics, it’s wrinkle-resistant and it has moisture absorbency qualities just like most other regenerated cellulosic fibers. Last but not least, because of the hypoallergenic material, it’s suitable for sensitive skin as well. Cupro is a regenerated cellulose fiber that is produced by treating cotton cellulose with cuprammonium salt. You can blend Cupro and Viscose very well. You can wash the fabric by the delicate wash program at 40°. It can be ironed on medium heat and dry cleaned.
When you like to work with eco-friendly material for your creations only, Cupro fabric is a very good option. This is because it is made from a recycled part of the cotton plant. It has the quality to retain dye very well, because, in terms of waste, the dyeing process is much more streamlined. So designers who are very eco-conscious with their collection can always rely on Cupro material. At the Knipidee fabric wholesaler, you can order Cupro fabrics in many different compositions, colors, and styles. Any fashion designer or company can buy in textiles here. With over 6 million meters directly available from stock, delivery time is very short. Plus, Knipidee ships internationally to any country in the world.
