Fabric of many uses.
Ripstop makes great jackets and wind-breakers for any member of your family.
Many non clothing applications, also. Ripstop is a light weight fabric.
It has interwoven ripstop reinforcement threads. These threads are in a crosshatch pattern. The intervals are typically 5 to 8 millimeters (0.2 to 0.3 in).
Thin and lightweight ripstop fabrics have a 3-dimensional structure due to the thicker threads being interwoven in thinner cloth.
This reinforcing technique makes Ripstop Fabric resistant to tearing and ripping.
During weaving, thicker reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern.
These threads are woven in both the warp and fill direction. This is pretty much the definition of ripstop fabric.
Advantages of ripstop fabric is the good strength to weight ratio. Small tears do not easily spread. The crosshatch pattern stops the tear from progressing.
Hand washing is fine. Or Machine wash on the gentle cycle. Air Dry is preferable. If you have to use a dryer, please use very very low heat. Ironing should not be necessary. But, if ironing is needed, use a (very) cool iron.
