    • Types of Fibres
      • Natural
        • Comes from plants and animals
        • Renewable & Biodegradabl
        • Absorbent and strong but poor resistance to biological damage
      • Regenerated
        • Made from natural materials (eg. Cellulose) then treated with chemicals
        • Similar properties to natural but canoe changed by chemicals
      • Synthetic
        • Man made fibres made from polymers
        • Non-renewable therefore less sustainable
        • Can be given many different properties, in general resisted to biological damage and can't be changed by heating , but not very absorbent so hard to dye
