British DMC Wool

Wool DMC Brio ball of printed wool, multicolored, with a pleasant touch. This marbled wool, composed of acrylic fibers and wool, creates a wonderful degraded effect when weaving thanks to the combination of many tonalities. Acrylic fibres have good resistance to most chemicals, except strong alkalis and chlorine-based bleaches. Acrylics can be dry-cleaned. Their pleasant wool feel is very soft and comfortable to wear, so it will protect your skin and prevent redness or irritation in sensitive skin. Acrylics are the most similar to wool. Carpet fibres appear to be wool and baby fabrics appear to be wool, but they are softer and easier to care for. Jersey, Challis and other fine fabrics can be reproduced with acrylic fibers. DMC Brio is perfect for weaving all kinds of autumn or winter garments, from scarves, hats, blouses, sweaters or cardigans, to household items such as blankets or pillowcases.

The composition of DMC Brio wool is:

. 80% acrylic 20% wool Acrylic fibre is a synthetic fibre made from acrylonitrile, from which its generic name derives. Acrylonitrile was first obtained in Germany in 1893. It was one of the chemicals used by Carothers and its team in the fundamental research on high polymers conducted at Du Pont. Du Pont developed an acrylic fiber in 1944 and began commercial production of them in 1950. It was given the trade name Orlon. This wool is composed mostly of acrylic fibers very resistant and that make this material is durable. Aesthetics The cost of fabrics and garments made with acrylic fibers is similar to good quality wool, but are especially suitable for people allergic to wool. The first acrylic fibers produced pilling and the garments were stretched and bagged (instead of shrinking, like wool) but these problems were solved by using proper structures in the yarns and fabric. Acrylics can be ironed, they also have the ability to develop a latent shrinkage potential and retain it indefinitely at room temperature. Durability Acrylic fibers are not as durable as nylon, polyester, or olefin fibers, but for clothing and household uses their strength is satisfactory. The first orlon was produced in filament form with almost as good a strength as nylon. The resistance of acrylics to dyes and the high cost of production limited their use in these end uses. Success was later achieved by using short fibers of lower strength. Comfort Acrylic fibers are soft and can sometimes cause allergies or hives in the contact area of the garment. They have a density of 1.14-1.15 g/cc, which makes them much lighter than wool. Moisture recovery varies from 1.30 to 3.0%. Large volume acrylic fibers provide heat in lightweight fabrics. Care and maintenance; in some garments the finish is lost and the fabric will feel rough. These fibers are resistant to moths and fungi. Acrylic fibers have excellent sunlight resistance. The combustion characteristics of acrylic fibers are similar to that of acetates. The fibers soften, catch fire and burn freely, decomposing to leave a black and brittle residue. It gives off an aromatic chemical odour, very different from the vinegar odour of acetate. The difference in flammability between acrylic and modacrylic fibres is a result of the high content of acrylonitrile in acrylic fibres. Modacrylic, where the content of this substance is much lower.

The characteristics of Brio DMC wool are:

. Each ball weighs 100 grams and is 345 metres long. It can be woven with knitting needles of 4 - 5 mm, and crochet needles of 4mm. To weave a square of 10 x 10 centimetres, you must assemble 22 stitches and work 28 turns. This wool can be washed in a washing machine at a temperature of 40ºC. Machine drying is not recommended. It can be ironed at a moderate temperature, approximately 110ºC.Brio de Lanas DMC. ball of printed wool
