The Advantage and Disadvantage of Some Types of Fabrics

Different fabrics have different features. If we know some of these, it will be beneficial for us to make an ideal purchase.

1 Cotton cloth

It is the generic term for all kinds of cotton textiles. It is often used to make fashion, casual clothing, underwear and shirts. It is light, warm, soft and snug. Its hygroscopicity and breathability are excellent, yet it is apt to shrink and wrinkle, so it looks not so stiff and smooth. You need to iron it often if you wear the clothing made of this fabric.

2 Linen

It refers to the fabric made from some bast fibers such as cannabis, flax, ramie and jute. It is generally used to make casual clothing and work clothing. Currently it is also used to make summer clothing. It possesses good strength and has good hygroscopicity, heat conduction and breath ability. However, it is uncomfortable to wear and it looks coarse and hard.

3 Silk

It is the generic term for all the silk textiles that woven from the material of silk yarns. The same with cotton clothing, it has various types and each of them has its own particular features. It is often used to make variety of clothes, especially the lady’s dress. It looks bright and lustrous. It is light, smooth and ventilate. Once you wear the clothing made of this fabric, you will look elegant and you will feel very comfortable. However, although possessing so many advantages, it still has many disadvantages, for example, it is easy to wrinkle and fade color and it is not so durable.

4 The wool fabric

It refers to the textile made of different kinds of wool and cashmere. Generally speaking, it is often used to make formal and high quality clothes such as the full dress, the business suit and the overcoat. It is wrinkle free, wearable, soft and stiff. It is also flexible and can keep warm well. However, it is hard to be washed and not suitable to make summer clothing.

5 Leather

It is the tannage made from animal skin and it is mostly used to make winter clothing. It can be classified into two types. One type is leather and the other is designing fur. Designing fur is light and good at keeping warm. Moreover, it looks noble and dignity. However, it is so expensive and hard to be stored that it needs your special care.

6 The chemical fiber

It is the fiber made from polymeric compound. It has two types, namely artificial fiber and synthetic fiber. Both are colorful, soft, drooping, stiff and sleek, but their heat resistance, hygroscopicity and breathability are not so good. It will be out of shape if contacting with heat and it is easy to produce static electricity. It can be used to make different kinds of clothes, yet the clothes made of this fabric are not high-grade.

Pros and Cons of the Japanese Knotweed

There are many names which the Japanese knotweed can be known as; Reynoutria japonica, Fallopia japonica and Polygonum cuspidatum are the scientific names for the Japanese knotweed. Reynoutria japonica is the oldest name given in 1777 by Houttuyn, a renowned Dutch botanist.

This name became lost over 10 decades with the weed named as Polygonum cuspidatum by Siebold and Zuchharini in 1845. Today, its main scientific name is Fallopia japonica.

International renown

The Japanese knotweed is internationally known in local names such as American bamboo, Mexican bamboo, fleece flower, donkey or sally rhubarb, pea shooters, monkey weed, elephant ears, Hancock’s curse, crimson beauty, Huzhang and wild rhubarb.

This weed species belong to the Polygonaceae knotweed family which include the rhubarb, sorrel and buckwheat. This large herbaceous weed species is native to China, Korea, Taiwan and Japan. It was first introduced to the USA and Europe in the 19th century.


The Japanese knotweed is quite versatile in its uses. It was originally intended to feed field animals, prevent soil erosion and be a decorative plant with its small white and creamy flowers. Its root extract was highly sought after for Chinese medicine.

Its young shoots can be eaten as vegetables and its stalk rind can be used in jams, soups and sauces. It can be made into a dessert dish with some creative culinary skills and condiments.


However, this weed plant is considered as one of the most invasive weed species on every continent; hence, efforts are made to stem it out through various eradication treatments. UK ha a law against the spread of this weed species in its 1981 Wildlife and Countryside Act.

Australia and New Zealand have also encountered much difficulty in controlling the wide spread growth of this weed. It can damage almost any surface be it wall or ground. Foundations of buildings can be cracked and become unstable with the presence of the Japanese knotweed.

A small shoot of this weed can push its way out of any tiny crack to cause massive damages. Hence, pavements, drains, roads, buildings, flood defenses, historical buildings, archaeological sites and even cemetery can be damaged by the Japanese knotweed.

The rapid growth of this weed plant can overtake river banks to prevent access to the rivers. Native plants are crowded out by the Japanese knotweed and soon go into extinction. Land value plummets with the presence of the knotweed. Eradication of this weed plant is difficult, costly and not guaranteed.
