I'm in the process of building a shadowbox, and I want to cover the back (which my medals and armband will be in contact with) in black fabric.
For preservation purposes, I read that 100% cotton was good enough. However, I found a blend fabric that consists of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, and is therefore ticker.
What do you guys think? Could it still be as neutral as pure natural cotton or is it an instant no-go? I really hope that we have some kind of fabric expert here, as I went to a couple of stores but couldn't get any answer.

Do not go with any fabric which contains man made materials.

Thanks, that's exactly what I was thinking.
I was asking as I found this blend fabric accidentally - I asked for 100% cotton but was sold something else.

You might be better off with unbleached cotton cloth!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Indeed, I bought some, but I'd like the back to be black, and I'm hoping that getting some 100% cotton is a good compromise. I'll be cutting a piece of unbleached cotton to be between the black cotton and the NSDAP armband.
