Definition of Textile Fibers & Types of Textile Fibers.

Definition of Fibers:   The essential requirements for fibers to be spun into yarn include a length of at least 5 millimeters, flexibility, cohesiveness, and sufficient strength. Fibres are the foundation for all textile products and can either be natural (natural fibres) or man-made (manufactured or man-made regenerated). Within these two types or groups, there are two main kinds of fibres: Fibres of indefinite (very great) length, called filaments. Fibres of much shorter length, called staple fibres. Filaments are generally combined and twisted to form yarns, whilst staple fibres are spun to create yarns.

Non-Woven Fabrics

Nonwovens do not depend on the interlacing of yarn for internal cohesion. Intrinsically they have neither an organized geometrical structure. They are essentially the result of the relationship between one single fiber and another. This provides nonwoven fabrics with characteristics of their own, with new or better properties (absorption, filtration) and therefore opens them up […]
