Pen Fab dress shirts of the Art of Camouflage are made out of poly cotton. We believe that a high quality consumer product starts with a selection of the finest materials at the beginning of the production process. We choose to work with blended fabrics poly cotton, because cotton has some unique advantages. Like staying dry, because it has the ability to absorb moisture. In this article we will introduce the five biggest benefits of a shirt made out of cotton and polyester.
Cotton has great cooling properties
Cotton is a breathable fabric, which allows your body to stay dry, while your skin is still able to ´breathe´. This ensures staying cool, even on warmer days in summer. Or any other situation where you might sweat.
Because cotton is able to absorb moisture, your body will stay dry throughout the day and this will help you to feel comfortable and cool too.
Last but not least, the cotton fibers keep the fabric away from your skin. This creates a thin layer of air that not only helps you stay cool in summer, but also helps to keep you warm during colder days.
A fabric made from a poly cotton blend combines the strengths of the two fibers. Poly cotton garments are breathable, tear-resistant, and can be fashioned into abrasion-resistant fabrics, like canvas. While not as inexpensive as pure polyester, poly cotton blends do tend to cost less than comparable garments made of 100% cotton and they provide much more comfort. The previously mentioned 65/35 blend of cotton and polyester is the most popular for work garments, particularly because of price, durability and a larger color selection being available for purchase. When shopping for work garments, the choice between 100% cotton and poly cotton blends depends largely on the work environment and personal preference. If employees work indoors around machinery, the tear-resistance of poly cotton may be favorable. If the work is in an outdoor setting, particularly in hot climates, 100% cotton fabric could be the better choice. Before deciding, make sure to take all environmental factors into consideration.
