Polka Dot Bombshell Dress — Shoptiques A synthetic fiber with the luxurious feel of silk, acetate has some water resistance properties and dries extremely quickly. Even though it is not as delicate as its natural counterparts, acetate should still be handled with care and responds best to dry cleaning. Acetate fibers are hypoallergenic, so it is a great option for the sensitive shopper! One wonders why there was such an uproar several years ago, when scientists in France cloned a sheep—with acrylic, textile manufacturers have been cloning wool for decades! Straight off the hanger, this fabric already has the lived-in feel of your favorite cotton tee, but without having to go through a dozen washings—it’s no wonder this is known as an eco-friendly fabric! A favorite luxury fabric traditionally manufactured in Asia and the Middle East, cashmere offers its wearer the advantage of looking dressy while feeling as if they left home wrapped in their favorite blanket!
