Characteristics of Fabric Types : Fabric Fire Test: Cotton & Linen


Hi, I’m Marti on behalf of Expert Village.
I’m going to be talking about fabrics 101 today. One way to test if your fabric is cotton,
is to do a flame test. One way to test your fabric is to take a straight edge or a lose
end to see what it is if it’s a natural fiber or a synthetic man made fiber. Take a lighter
and just the tip see how that continues to burn it doesn’t go out and there is no ash,
that means it’s a 100% cotton. The next fabric we will test is linen, linen burns a little
differently from cotton again take your lighter grab the end it burns and when you blow it
out it’s a little stiff on the end.
