How to Iron the New Crinkle Fabric Blouses
The term "cool iron" refers to ironing on the lowest setting possible. (iron image by Goran Bogicevic from Fotolia.com)

Crinkled fabric refers to a fabric that has been treated--chemically or mechanically--to create a textured, crinkly effect. Fabrics that can be crinkle-treated include cotton, velvet, wool and silk. Many people love crinkle fabric because it is low-maintenance. Because of the wrinkled effect, it does not need to be ironed often, if ever. However, large or deep wrinkles can form within crinkle fabric blouses, requiring special care when ironing.
