Polycotton Fabrics

Polycotton is a common and popular composition for curtaining and light soft furnishings. The composition combines the strength of the two fibres. Polycotton fabrics are easier to care for than those made of pure cotton and as result are less likely to crease or shrink when washed in a machine. The addition of cotton in the blend helps to retain a natural appearance.
