Natural Versus Synthetic Fiber
Natural Fibers: Defined as “ substances produced by plants and animals that can be spun into a filament, thread or rope and further woven, knitted, matted or bound.” i.e. linen, cotton, silk, wool, alpaca, cashmere etc.
Synthetic Fibers: “Man-made textile fibers created by extruding fiber forming materials through a spinneret”… take a look at this video to see the process in action. (i.e. rayon, nylon, polyester etc.)
