About Fiber

A fiber is the smallest visible unit of any textile product.  It is a type of material having continuous filamets which can either be spun or twisted into yarms or can also be directly compressed into fabric.


Fibers naturally occur in plants, animals or mineral.  The most economic effect fibers for commerce are cellulosic and protein fibers.  The cellulosic fibers obtained from the seed hairs, stems and leaves of plants; protein fibers obtained from the hair fur or cocoons of animals and the crystalline mineral asbestos.  Other fibers are manufactured which divided into regenerated fibers and synthetic fibers.  Regenerated fibers are made from natural materials by processing these materials to form a fiber structure. Rayon and acetate are two common regenerated fibers.  Synthetic fibers are made entirely from chemicals.  Synthetic fibers are usually stronger than either natural or regenerated fibers.  Synthetic fibers and the regenerated acetate fiber are thermoplastic; they are softened by heat. The most widely used kinds of synthetic fibers are nylon (polyamide), polyester, acrylic, and olefin.


Plant Fibers:natural fibers, found in the cell wall of plants and are cellulosic in composition.
Animal Fibers:are produced from animals or insects, and are protein in composition. Animal fibers consist largely of particular proteins. Wool and silk are popularly used natural fibers sourced from animals.
Mineral Fibers: are sourced from natural minerals and stones. Asbestos is a mineral based natural fiber used for different types of textile.
Manufactured Fibers:also called 'man-made fibers', can be obtained from either natural raw materials or from synthetic chemicals. These fibers are used in a number of industries including home furnishings.
