ITY stands for "Interlock Twist Yarn." This type of fabric is a knit and is known for its stretch, drape, and slight sheen. It's typically composed of polyester, but can also be blended with other fibers such as spandex for added elasticity. ITY is often used in the making of various types of clothing, including dresses, tops, skirts, and more due to its resilience and comfort.
Here's how to care for ITY fabric:
Washing: ITY fabric is machine washable. Use cold water and a gentle cycle to prevent damage to the fibers.
Detergent: Use a mild detergent suitable for synthetic fabrics. Avoid using bleach, as it can damage the fabric and fade the color.
Drying: It's best to air dry ITY fabric to maintain its shape and longevity. If necessary, you can use a dryer on a low heat setting. However, because ITY is a quick-drying fabric, air drying is usually sufficient.
Ironing: ITY fabric is wrinkle-resistant, so ironing is typically unnecessary. If you do need to iron it, use a low heat setting and always iron on the reverse side to prevent damage to the fabric's finish.
Storage: Store ITY fabric garments in a cool, dry place. Because of its wrinkle resistance, it can be folded or hung without worry.
Stains: Treat stains promptly to prevent them from setting. Use a stain remover that's safe for synthetic fabrics, and follow the instructions on the label.
As always, it's best to check the care label on any garment for specific cleaning instructions. ITY is generally quite durable and easy to care for, but the specific care instructions can vary depending on any additional fibers used in the blend or special treatments the fabric has undergone.
