Fibre direction is in which way most of the fibres lengths lie, relative to the length axis of the part.
After size, fiber length is the most important property of a fiber. Fiber length is critical in processing of fibers and yarns and in the translation of fiber strength to yarn strength. In general, a longer fiber length is preferred. Read more..
Fibre size, often referred to as fineness, is one of the most important properties of fibres. It is usually specified in terms of diameter or linear density. The size of natural fibers is often given as a diameter in micrometre units. It reflects the average width along the fibres length. Read more..
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.

Fibres are elongated cells with pitted cell walls. They are found in water-conducting tissue, xylem (transport tissue in vascular plants ) and food-conducting tissue, phloem (living tissue carries organic nutrients), along leaf veins and margins, and surrounding vascular bundles in stems.

Morphology is a term used to describe the study of the physical form and structure (see below) of a material and include a broad specter of characteristics. Fibre morphology contains macro-structure, micro-structure, sub-microscopic and fine structure of fibres, which are only observable through a light microscope. Read more..
Short lengths of fibres, normally measured in inches or fraction of inches, like those naturally found in cotton and wool. Silk, however, is the only natural fibre that does not come in staple lengths but instead in filament lengths.
