Natural fibres

Natural Fibres

Natural fibers are any hair-like  raw material directly obtainable through an animal, vegetable, or mineral source that can be convertible, after spinning, into yarns and then into woven cloth. The usefulness of a fibre for commercial purposes is determined by its length, strength, pliability, elasticity, abrasion resistance, moisture absorbency, and various surface properties. The earliest indication of hemp is in South-East Asia in 4500 BC, linen in Egypt in 3400 BC, and cotton fibre use is in India in 3000 BC. See also textile fibre overview, man-made fibre and synthetic fibre.
