Margaret's Material Guide FAQs
(Back to FAQ Topics)

We have produced a Fiber Glossary booklet which contains a summary of many of the most frequently seen fibers in clothing.

Rayon is a man-made material composed of regenerated cellulose usually obtained from wood pulp. Rayon can be made to simulate many common materials such as wool and silk and can be used by itself or blended with other materials. The advantages associated with rayon is its versatility, excellent moisture absorption, and dye compatibility.

Some of rayon's limitations include its sensitivity to heat and light exposure, water can weaken the material as well as cause shrinkage, and many spot removal techniques are incompatible.

Some types of fabric and garment construction make dry cleaning advisable. Wet cleaning can make some fabrics limp and may cause shrinkage. If wet cleaning is performed please follow the instructions outlined in our FAQ regarding wet cleaning. Note that fabrics containing rayon can be bleached after testing first. However, some finishes to control shrinkage may be sensitive to bleach.

All garments are required to have a clothing care tag attached to them with instructions on how to clean and what materials the garment is made out of. It's important to leave that information on the garment, otherwise, even your dry cleaner will not know exactly how to handle it. Here's a link to our Clothing Care Symbol Guide.

Note that handbags are NOT required to have that kind of information attached, which is why cleaning them can be so difficult.
