What is Fiber?
Fiber: Fiber is a material that consists of a fibrous structure and has a minimum length of, at the latest, 500 times its diameter. It is also defined as one of the delicate, hair portions of the tissues of a plant or animal or other substances that are very small in diameter about their length.
What is Textile Fiber?
Textile fiber: textile fibers are materials of natural or artificial origin that can be converted into yarn and fabric for clothing and domestic and industrial purposes by interlacing or interloping. In other words, textile fiber is a class of natural or manufactured materials with some unique properties, i.e., spin ability or spun-able, high length-to-width ratio, sufficient strength, flexibility, dyeing ability, and cohesiveness, stiffness, ability to resist, good elongation properties.
“All textile fibers are fiber, but all fiber are not textile fiber,”-Explain.
Answer: All the fibers can’t be textile fiber because to be textile fiber should be some unique and essential properties, i.e., spin ability or spun-able, high length-to-width ratio, sufficient strength, flexibility, dyeing ability, cohesiveness, stiffness, ability to resist, good elongation.
Cotton, jute, etc., are textile fibers. Because they have all properties to be a textile fiber. On the other hand, fibers like human hair are only fiber as they do not possess quality like spin ability and cohesiveness.
So we can say, all textile fibers are fiber, but all fiber are not textile fiber.
