An Overview of Animal and Plant Fibers are being used in textile industry

Posted by Sachin CMI on December 29th, 2020

Animal and plant fibers have been used in a variety of applications since ancient times. Animal fibers come from dead animals such as cows and horses, birds such as ostriches and emus, and reptiles such as snakes and lizards. Some animal fibers have characteristics valuable for use in textiles such as wool and silk. Textiles made from plant material tend to be softer and more pliable than animal fibers, although some kinds of plant fiber are more durable than others. In the textile industry, animal fibers are often separated from animal skins, wool, or cotton to make them absorbent and soft. Most often these fibers are man-made fibers like polyester. Examples include leather, fur/hair (including human hair), and wool. The animal fibers most frequently used in the manufacture of textiles by hand or machine are cashmere, lamb wool, and silk. Animal fibers tend to be more absorbent than natural fibers but are subject to abrasion and damage from abrasion.

Animal and plant fibers are used in the process of manufacturing luxury garments such as scarves, fleece jackets and shawls, and decorative items such as laces, pillows, carpets as well as some commercial fabrics. Natural fiber or plant fibers are soft, translucent, fine-grained, and strong threads made by living organisms.
