Miscellaneous Fibers

Fibers which do not logically "fit" under other classifications such as natural, manmade, mineral etc. such novaloid, carbon, poly-phenylene dibenzimidazole polyimide fibers etc. are categorized under miscellaneous fibers.

Yarn/Thread Count Numbering System

Threads are usually made up of several single strands twisted or plied together. The numbering system for threads has two parts: one related to the thickness of the single strand and the other to the number of strands (ply). Whereas the ply…

Polymer Fibres

Polymers are made up of many molecules all strung together to form really long chains. Things that are made of polymers look, feel, and act depending on how their atoms and molecules are connected.

Manmade Protein Fibers

Manmade protein fibers are produced by dissolving proteins like casein from milk, soya bean protein, and zein from corn in diluted alkali and forcing these solutions through a spinneret into an acid-formaldehyde coagulating bath.

Synthetic Fibers

The synthetic man-made fibers include the polyamides (nylon), polyesters, acrylics, polyolefin, vinyl, and elastomeric fibers, while the regenerated fibers include rayon, the cellulose acetates, the regenerated proteins, glass and rubber…

Man-made /Artificial fibers

Man-made fibers are fibers in which either the basic chemical units have been formed by chemical synthesis followed by fiber formation or the polymers from natural sources have been dissolved and regenerated after passage through a…
