Fibres and Fabrics

I shall focus on fabrics sold for garment making, craft projects and to a lesser degree ones used for home furnishings.

Fabrics are made from fibres, sometimes just one, but frequently 2 or 3 different ones.

Ready to wear clothes have to have the fibre content listed on the garment labels, however this doesn't tell us what the fabric is called.

Buying fabric online is difficult if we don't know the name of what we're looking for.
