The knitted sweater: which material to choose? 


The major brands of ready-to-wear clothing offer a wide choice of knitted sweaters. But what are they made from?

Polyester, Viscose, Acrylic, Nylon... what do you really know?
Acrylic, nylon and polyester are made from petrochemicals. They are materials regularly used by well-known brands despite the risks of allergies and so on.
Viscose is a vegetable material. It is transformed into plastic by subjecting celluloses to chemical treatments.

As far as natural materials are concerned, cotton is classically the most used. Many brands use cotton for their knitted sweaters. This material offers many qualities: it is breathable, hypoallergenic, and perfect for sensitive skin. It's very sturdy and versatile, allowing brands to create all kinds of items. Cotton is very cheap, you will find many cotton knit sweaters for reasonable prices. However, it also has its drawbacks. It wrinkles very easily, so make sure you iron it well. Over time, cotton can become damaged: mildew, pilling and discoloration can appear.
