Abstract: One of the best selling fabrics on the market today is the dynamic blend of 65 per cent Dacron1 35 per cent cotton. A great variety in styling is now available and is making the influence of the fabric widespread. It is being used in men's dress and sport shirtings, ladies' dresses and blouses, and is expected to gain in the sportswear and suiting fields with a carry-over into all-season apparel. Even though fabrics made of this blend are higher in price, recent studies have shown that the price-conscious consumer will frequently buy a Dacron-and-cotton garment. Dacron-and-cotton and all-cotton fabrics look the same and it is only after several wearings and laundering that the superior performance of this blend is definitely established. As a result of studies it has been concluded that the Dacron-and-cotton blend offers better long-term value in looks, performance, and minimum care.2
