Benang Kait: Summer Mercerized

Question: What is Mercerized Cotton?

Answer: Mercerized cotton is a special kind of cotton yarn that is more lustrous than conventional cotton. It is also stronger, takes dye a little more readily, makes the yarn more resistant to mildew and reduces lint. It also may not shrink or lose its shape as much as “regular” cotton.

Mercerization, the process by which mercerized yarn is made, is named for the British chemist John Mercer, who developed the process and received a patent for his work in 1851.

Mercer found that adding caustic soda (lye) or sulfuric acid to cotton made the fiber swell and straighten. No one was too impressed by that, but in 1890 Horace Lowe developed a process by which caustic soda was added to the yarn under high tension, which added the luster that mercerized cotton is famous for today.

The process of making mercerized cotton is rather complex; if you’d like to read more about it there is an excellent (though technical) article at FiberArts.org.

Mercerized yarn stays shiny through washing and gives a nice, somewhat fancier look to finished items.

Benang..

Assalamualaikum πŸ™‚

Tadi sempat juga saya singgah membeli benang pelbagai warna.. yang hitam ingin dibuat pom pom.. dan yang lain masih tak tahu hendak dibuat apa..huhu

Mungkin boleh belajar crochet pelan-pelan πŸ˜€

Masih banyak benda yang saya tidak tahu, yang ingin saya pelajari perlahan-lahan. Di dalam kesempitan kerja, akan saya cuba juga usahakan untuk menambah ilmu pengetahuan di dalam dunia mengait. Tips-tips mengait, langkah-langkah mengait pattern, dari yang senang ke tahap yang susah.. is not impossible, right? πŸ˜€

Apabila menjelajah ke blog-blog lain, saya sungguh kagum melihat betapa kreatifnya orang-orang Malaysia ya πŸ˜€ Apabila melihat kraf-kraf ni, rasa seronok betul dan buatkan hati jadi happy πŸ˜€ Spirit pun naik.

Just, bila nak buat mesti ada willingness! Baru boleh jalan..

Saya percaya setiap orang pasti ada kelebihannya masing-masing, yang penting tu, tahu di mana hendak dicungkil πŸ˜€

Pada masa lapang dulu, saya suka menghabiskan masa bermain piano, satu-satunya kemahiran yang saya ada.

Tetapi sekarang saya sudah ada satu kemahiran iaitu mengait dan saya sungguh gembira dapat belajar mengait daripada knitters yang ada di internet ni πŸ˜€ Semoga Allah terus memberikan saya kesungguhan untuk terus belajar.

Oh ya,

Topi mesti siapkan hari ini juga. Tinggal ditutup bahagian atasnya lagi. Harap-harap, besok sudah boleh bagi pada tuannya πŸ˜€

InsyaAllah,

Selamat petang semua!
