Fibre

What does Fibre mean?

A type of hair-like filaments or threads that make up the composition of fabrics and are divided into two categories: natural and man-made.

Heddels explains Fibre

Natural fibers are derived from plants, animals, or minerals and include cotton, fur, hair, silk, and wool. Meanwhile, man-made fibers are either regenerated or synthetic. Regenerated fibers are also made from natural materials; however, they are then processed to form a new fiber. Viscose rayon is an example of a regenerated fiber. Synthetic fibers are created from chemicals and include polyester, nylon, acetate, and acrylic.
