A nonwoven product derived from the process of entangling a web of loose fibers through multiple rows of jets of water at high pressure, this process entangles the fabrics and interlinks the fibres. Interlinking two fabrics in different directions gives it isotropic properties, the same strength in any direction.

There are several terms for spunlace nonwoven fabric or spunlaced, such as jet entangled, needled, hydroenentangled or hydraulic, but the term spunlace or spunlaced is the most popular in the nonwoven industry.

Spunlace Cross Lapper is suitable for industrial use in such fields as medical and health, hygiene and beauty, hair removal strips, make-up removal disks and cleansing wipes

SPUNLACE CROSS LAPPER CHARACTERISTICS. Strength and absorption. Minimum weight 40 g/m2, max 180 g/m2, non-allergenic and non-irritating.

Polyester Nonwoven: The High Strength, High Density Nonwoven
When it comes to demanding applications that require strong and durable fabrics, polyester nonwovens offer a great option. Nonwoven polyester fabric can be created from 100% polyester filament or polyester blend. Nonwoven polyester is an excellent choice for a wide range of application needs including industrial filter materials, medical and hygiene products, construction materials, telecom products, agricultural fabric, and more.

A variety of fabric treatment options are available to endue polyester nonwoven materials with specific beneficial characteristics. These attributes may include:




Dry Cleaning Resistance

Flame Retardant

Heat Sealability


Depending on the manufacturer, polyester nonwovens can be fabricated in custom colors and printing.

Spotlight on Poly-viscose fabric - its uses, nature, benefits and drawbacks
Poly-viscose fabric (or just polyviscose) is a blend of viscose and polyester. Both are also made into clothing on their own, but are very different to wear and care for - see below. Blending polyester with viscose gives the best of both worlds, very affordably. Polyviscose is best described as a semi-natural or semi-synthetic fibre.

By blending viscose and polyester to make a new fabric quality, poly-viscose largely retains the pleasant drape and feel of standard viscose, so its touch is quite natural to handle. But the added polyester means polyviscose is much easier to care for, as it's machine washable and can be tumble-dried. It's also very robust, making it ideal for hard wearing clothes or heavy commercial settings such as public seating. Polyviscose has better wicking and breathe-sensation than most artificial fibres, but is less breathable than fully natural fibres like wool. Poly-viscose enjoys a high lustre, which is a characteristic of both its constituent materials. And that it can be heat-set is an advantage for products like kilts or pleated ladies skirts which benefit from a permanent crease.

There are three main types of customer who choose polyviscose. The first appreciates its hard-wearing and washable qualities as well as its cost-effectiveness, using the fabric in upholstery, garments or soft furnishings that are liable to wear and tear or need regular washing, such as heavy duty seating, uniforms, children's clothes, or tablecloths.

Another group are those who suffer from an allergy to wool. These customers select polyviscose as a wool-substitute, thanks to its anti-allergenic (or hypoallergenic) properties. In fact a good polyviscose can be hard to distinguish at first sight from pure new wool when made into a skirt or kilt. So in many ways poly-viscose is an ideal alternative to wool.

A third reason is that as a semi-natural product with no animal source. So polyviscose is preferred to wool by vegans and some vegetarians.

What is poly-viscose made from?
Viscose, known in the US as Rayon, is a man-made natural plant-based cellulose fibre, regenerated from dissolved wood pulp or bamboo. Viscose was first produced in France in 1883 and in commercial volumes from 1910, originally known as artificial silk although chemically it more resembles cotton. Tremendously versatile and quite cheap to produce, it has found a myriad of applications and is now the world's most produced man-made fibre. Smooth, soft, light, and comfortable, viscose drapes well, making it a favourite for swooping summer dresses, soft skirts, blouses, and synthetic velvet. Viscose resists static, and is breathable, not trapping body heat or perspiration. However, on its own viscose is not very strong, especially as it absorbs and holds water easily, losing fully half its strength when wet, making it liable to mildew if damp. Viscose can also degrade when exposed to sunlight, and is susceptible to abrasion, shrinking, pilling, wrinkling and creasing. It should generally only be dry-cleaned.

Polyester is an artificial fibre refined from oil. Pure polyester fabric, unlike viscose, is resistant to pilling, wrinkle and abrasion, and does not shrink at normal temperatures. Being 90 % crystalline, it does not easily absorb water, so dries faster, and is mildew-resistant. But this water-resistence has disadvantages too, requiring costly 'disperse dyes' to colour it, and even then being liable to sun-bleaching. This requires dying for poly-viscose to be a two-stage process. Its inability to absorb sweat makes polyester uncomfortable to wear in hot weather. But when added to viscose, these qualities mostly come into their own.

Is polyviscose environmentally sustainable?
Because viscose is plant-based and therefore renewable, it is widely seen as a more environmentally friendly and sustainable material than other synthetic fibres. But is this true, and what about poly-viscose? The answer is mixed. The polyester component of poly-viscose is clearly problematic, deriving from hydrocarbons, with all the implications for climate change that industry brings, plus the chemical impacts from its manufacture. In that it is similar to other artificial fibres.

But with viscose, the arguments are more complex. As a plant-based fibre, viscose is not inherently toxic or polluting. But to create it and let it withstand regular wearing and washing, the raw cellulose has to be chemically treated such as with caustic soda, ammonia, acetone, and sulphuric acid, which is then filtered and spun into a fine thread. Campaigners allege that this process releases toxic chemicals into the air and waterways surrounding production plants. Carbon disulphide which is also used is said to have been linked to higher levels of heart disease, birth defects, skin conditions and cancer in textile workers and in those living near viscose factories. We therefore have a fabric from a natural and sustainable source, but made with chemicals. However, manufacturers are making positive efforts to ensure clean production as we strive for a nature-friendly world. Viscose is increasingly manufactured with the Lyocell process that uses N-Methlymorpholine N-oxide as the solvent. This results in less waste, making it more eco-friendly.

Viscose production also contributes to the rapid depletion of the world's forests, which are cleared for pulpwood plantations. And the extraction process wastes around 70% of the tree. Around 30% of rayon and viscose is made from pulp from endangered and ancient forests, causing habitat destruction at real risk to endangered species. Human rights abuses and land grabbing from Indigenous communities are also associated with this practice.These impacts on workers, local communities and the environment are why viscose (including bamboo viscose) was given 'D' and 'E' scores for sustainability in the Made-By Environmental Benchmark for Fibres. However, organisations like are working to ensure that viscose is not from high-risk areas. In 2014, Canopy also created a life-cycle analysis on alternative fibres in conjunction with Stella McCartney.

So, the picture overall is multi-faceted. For example, though pure new wool is certainly more natural, it does require the rearing of sheep, which both create climate-affecting methane, and can themselves cause considerable landscape degradation. As in most areas of life, you have to make your own decisions based on the best available information, which is what we have tried to give you here.

But bear in mind another key element of sustainability, which is to minimise waste by retaining and re-using. Many of the ecological concerns linked to viscose are heightened by its being a favourite fabric of the fast-fashion industry, where giant companies pressure manufacturers to produce at ever-lower ecological and social standards. This encourages these unsustainable social and environmental practices.

Hopefully, retailers like CLAN Scotweb can play a role in addressing these problems, not least as we refuse to play the throwaway fashion game. Our products are almost all intended to be owned and loved as wardrobe perennials, or even hand-me-downs that can be passed as heirloom items from parent to child.
