Textiles fibres

a short fibre/ yarn
1 of 24
a long and continues fibre/ yarn
2 of 24
synthetic fibres
produced from raw materials is petrochemical or coal.
3 of 24
60 times finer than a human hair. can be blended with other fibres. thermoplastic. uses sportswear and underwear
4 of 24
warm, easy to wash (non absorbent), thermoplatic, handle like wool, durable and crease resistant
5 of 24
strong, easy to wash (poor absorbency), thermoplastic, feels cool and smooth, melts is not heat reisitant. can be damaged by sunlight whch discolours it and weakness it. not alwaycomfortable
6 of 24
strong, stronger when wet, easy to wash (poor absorbency) thermoplastic, feels coll and smooth, melts is not heat resistant, resistant to stretching and shrinking and recyclable
7 of 24
strong, easy to wash (poor absorbency), stretchy, resists chamical and perspiration and sun light and melts is not heat resistant
8 of 24
strong, durable, easy to care for, not very creases resistant, uses a lot of water to grow so organic cotton is better
9 of 24
linen/ flax plant
creases easily, absorbent, durable, strong interlining, uses table cloths, skirts, shirt, suits, ropes.
10 of 24
fine like silk. uses clothing, table cloths, napkins and hand kerchiefs
11 of 24
natural fibre from the hemp stalk is extremely durable and can be used in the production of textiles. clothing canvas, rope, card-aye, archival grade paper, paper and construction materials
12 of 24
used as a replacement for silk but is a long process to make the fibres so fine. uses rope, dresses
13 of 24
has scales on the surface which cause the fibres to shrink when rubbed or heated. the crimps in the fibre give it a slight stretch and helps it to insulate absorbent, flame resistant and crease resistant.
14 of 24
fibre can be white, tan and brown, stronger than most wool fibres fine scale structure. used for luxury textiles items.
15 of 24
is known for it's extreme softness, warmth and lustrous quality, a result of it extremely fine fibre.
16 of 24
camel hair
strong lustrous and smooth warm and light weight. best qualities are pure camel hair, other grades are blended with wool, which still make a very high quality fabric and much lower quality are blended with synthetic fibres expensive.
17 of 24
very soft, good alternative to wool some moral issues, thermal insulator.
18 of 24
only natural fibre that is a filament fibre, expensive, moral issuse,fine , lustre, strongest natural fibre, absorbent, can keep warm and cool.
19 of 24
it tensile strenght surpasses that of steel. it has tremendous thermal stability, thermal and electrical resistances and is non flamble .
20 of 24
pvc (chlorofibre) (polyvinly)
strong, flexible, durable, water proof, can be wiped clean, can be heat set. uses wipes clean tablecloths, bags, coats.
21 of 24
addition strength, texture or additional of a high moister absorbency, viscose is chemically similar to those of cotton, viscose fibres are fairly week and best when blended with other fibres
22 of 24
cellulose fibre, biodegradable, strongest cellulose fibre when it is dry, drapes well very soft, hard wearing, dye well.
23 of 24
stronger when wet, abrasion resistant yet soft to handle has good drape properties. extremely absorbent and breathable which combine to make garments made from the fibre comfortable
