Asbestos fibres are modified natural fibres.
Basalt fibres made from rock solidified from volcanic lava are suggested by some as the alternative to glass fibres.
Ceramic fibre is the latest in a series of new materials earmarked for use as fibres.
Composite fabric is a term used to describe an engineered material with two or more different types of fibres composed in a sheath-core or side-side relation.
It still does not exist an official fibre to fabric engineering title for this vastly wide and large industry segment as it was never undertaken by pro textile associations. However, it can be described as the following; Fibre to fabric engineering can be defined as an interdisciplinary field in which scientific principles, tools of mathematics, engineering techniques, chemistry, physics and other physical sciences are applied in multiplicity of creative textile applications.

Glass, existing in a wide range of types for several end uses, is usually made by melting silica (sand material) at very high temperatures and adding to the melt the necessary fabrics. High temperatures always incur large energy costs. Read more..
Hybrid yarn is a term used on an engineered fibre or material that is composed for a specific purpose or technical functional requirement besides the basic as covering the body or looking fashionable. To create a material with a high level of unique performance to accomplish in a wide spectre of products, type of fibre, yarn needs the material scientists sometimes to modify conventional methods or use newly developed.
