Polycotton is a fabric created by a composition of both polyester and cotton. Mixing these two materials together creates a fabric with the benefits of both components. Polycotton has the advantages of being soft, like cotton, but unlike cotton, it is more durable and crease-resistant thanks to the added polyester. We supply a range of both 65% polyester 35% cotton and 80% polyester 20% cotton to match your tailoring needs.
Due to its durability, comfort and breathability, polycotton material is frequently used to create bedding and clothing. Polycotton sheeting and clothing have the added advantage of requiring less ironing, as the material is slightly stiffer and less likely to wrinkle.
