Cellulose Acetate Textile Fibre

Cellulose Acetate fibre is soft and warm to the handle and absorbs moisture slower than some other types of rayon. It closely resembles real silk. This fibre cannot be dyed with the ordinary cotton colours, thus enabling a designer to utilise this quality for cross-dyed effects. It can be manufactured into very fine yarns. Owing to its softness, it is successfully used for a great variety of dress fabrics and for draping. It is made from cotton or wood-pulp, which is converted into a compound, termed acetyl compound of cellulose. This compound is dissolved in acetone and the solution filtered. The solution is then forced through very fine openings and the filaments coagulated by exposure to warm air. These filaments are brought together to form a thread with the necessary twist.
