Theory:

Now, let us summarize whatever we have studied so far about fibres and fabrics in this chapter.
 
1. Ancient people used big leaves of trees and skins of the animals to cover themselves as dress. As humans become more civilized, they began to wear the fabrics from the plants as well as animals by inventing different methods of making the fabrics.
 
2. We classify fibres majorly as natural and synthetic fibres.
 
Natural fibres:Synthetic fibres:
  • Cotton
  • Wool
  • Silk
  • Jute
  • Hemp
  • Polyester
  • Nylon
  • Acrylic
  • Spandex
 
3. It is from yarns we produce fabrics, and yarns made from fibres.
 
4. Fibres like cotton and jute are obtained from plants.
 
5. The process of making yarn from fibres is known as Spinning.
 
6. Through method of weaving and knitting, we make fabric from yarns.
