As you know all of our clothes are made of fibers, but do you know something about fiber type? Of course, the required fiber type of different clothes is different and different types of fiber ha e different prices. Now, let us see the fiber type and compare their cost-effective in order to find the more suitable fiber we can use with lower price. At first, let us find out what is fiber before we talk about fiber type.
Fiber is a natural or synthetic string used as a component of composite materials, or, when matted into sheets, used to make products such as paper, papyrus, or felt. Fibers are often used in the manufacture of other materials. The strongest engineering materials often incorporate fibers, for example carbon fiber and ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. Fiber type decides the character of clothe.
There are three fiber types, including textile fiber, synthetic fiber and natural fiber. But we usually use the two fiber types. Natural fibers,one fiber type, include those produced by plants, animals, and geological processes and can be classified according to their origin. So we have more difficulties to get high quality fiber most times different from man-made fiber. Synthetic?come entirely from synthetic materials such as?petrochemicals, unlike those man-made fibers derived from such natural substances as cellulose or protein. Synthetic fibers can often be produced very cheaply and in large amounts compared to natural fibers, it also the main fiber type in clothes making, but for clothing natural fibers can give some benefits, such as comfort, over their synthetic counterparts.
Above all are the advantages and shortcomings of different fiber types. As we can see, when choose the fiber type, we need to compare our purpose and money decide which fiber type is more suitable. After all, costing less money to get more comfortable products is our basic purpose.
