In previous lessons, we learned to make fabric by arranging the yarns together. Now, let us explore how these yarns are made?
Where do these fibres come from?
In simple terms, fabrics made up of yarns, and yarns further made up of fibres.
We get fibers from natural sources such as cotton, jute, silk, and wool, that obtained from plants and animals. These are called natural fibres.
Obtained from the fleece of sheep or goat
Drawn from the cocoon of a silkworm
Obtained from the rabbit
For thousands of years, natural fibre was the only available source for making fabric. But in this modern world, using science and technology, we make fibres artificially. These are called Synthetic fibres.
Some examples of synthetic fibres:
