While human technology has produced a range of useful fibers, the world of textiles continues to value nature’s magnificent materials. This video introduces students to the differences between natural and synthetic fibers, then divides the first category into animal, vegetable, and mineral. A range of protein-based fibers are discussed, including their herd-animal sources and the methods by which the fibers are obtained, such as shearing, clipping, and shedding. Silk cultivation is shown, emphasizing that silk is the only natural fiber found in filament form. A look at vegetable fibers focuses on seed, stem, and leaf sources, while mineral or inorganic fibers are also concisely presented in the context of high-tech specialty uses.
