High Loft™ ECO Polyester Carded Fibre
About High Loft™ ECO Polyester Carded Polyester Hollowfibre Stuffing & Filling
recycled polyester hollowfibre is a high-quality synthetic fiber that is widely used in various industries for its durability, versatility, and affordability. Made from 100% pure polyester, this hollowfibre is extremely lightweight, soft, and fluffy, making it an ideal material for filling pillows, duvets, and other bedding items.
One of the main benefits of virgin polyester hollowfibre is its hypoallergenic nature. Unlike natural materials such as down or feathers, it is resistant to dust mites and other common allergens, making it a popular choice for those with allergies or sensitivities. Additionally, it is machine washable, making it easy to maintain and keep clean.
This type of hollowfibre is also highly breathable, allowing air to circulate freely within the fibers, which helps regulate body temperature and keep the sleeper comfortable. It is also quick-drying, making it a practical choice for outdoor clothing, such as jackets and sleeping bags.
Virgin polyester hollowfibre is a versatile and cost-effective material that is widely used in the textile industry. It can be blended with other fibers to create unique fabrics with enhanced properties, such as increased moisture-wicking or anti-static capabilities. Its lightweight, soft, and hypoallergenic nature make it a popular choice for bedding and clothing items that require comfort and durability.
The differences between Carded fibre and Ball fibre
Ball fibre and carded fibre are two different types of materials used for filling pillows, cushions, and other soft furnishings. The main difference between them lies in the way they are processed and shaped.
Ball fibre, also known as cluster fibre, is made by rolling small clusters of polyester fibres into tiny balls. These balls are then used as the filling for pillows, cushions, and other soft furnishings. The balls are soft and fluffy, and they retain their shape well, even with extended use. Ball fibre is often used in high-end pillows and cushions because of its luxurious feel and durability.
On the other hand, carded fibre is made by combing polyester fibres together to create a uniform, flat sheet of material. The fibres are then layered to create the desired thickness and density, and the resulting sheet is cut to size and used as the filling for pillows and cushions. Carded fibre is less expensive than ball fibre, and it is often used in budget-friendly pillows and cushions.
In terms of feel, ball fibre is generally considered to be softer and more luxurious than carded fibre. Ball fibre pillows and cushions also tend to retain their shape better over time, while carded fibre may flatten out with use. However, carded fibre is often more affordable and can be a good option for those on a budget.
Overall, the choice between ball fibre and carded fibre depends on personal preference and budget. Both materials have their pros and cons, and it's important to consider factors such as comfort, durability, and cost when choosing which one to use in your soft furnishings.
