1 Fabric Construction How fabric is made

fibers are created into yarns yarns are then woven or knit into fabrics fabrics are used to create projects

3 Fabric starts with the fibers
Black Alpaca Silk Baby fine camel hair Dyed Wool Silk Cotton

4 Once the fiber is collected, the fiber is spun into yarns
Spinning is the process of twisting fibers together to create yarns.

5 After the fiber is made into yarns the fabric is woven, knit or pressed into fabric

6 Explanation of Woven Fabric
consists of warp and weft yarns weaving occurs when two or more yarns are woven together at right angles to make a fabric strong and easy to sew on suggested for beginners to use

7 Woven Fabric Woven fabric made by a process of interlacing yarns to create cloth or fabric.

8 The yarn passes through the heddles in each shaft of this four-shaft table loom. This is a view from the rear of the loom.

9 Knit Fabric Knits are made by a series of interlocking loops.

10 Explanation of knit fabrics
knits provide stretch knits don't need a seam or edge finish; will not fray ball point needle is recommended for sewing on knits single knit fabric curls to the right side when stretched interlock knit is thicker than single knits and when stretched they don't curl

11 Explanation of Non-woven fabrics
made when fibers are pressed together using heat and moisture examples include: felt, non-woven interfacing and Polar fleece

12 Napped Fabric short fibers that create texture on fabric
use a nap layout treat the same way as a one-way directional fabric

blends were created to utilize the positive characteristics of each fiber different fibers that have been combined into 1 fabric, usually 1 natural & 1 synthetic EXAMPLE: polyester/cotton blend- the original cotton characteristics are improved and the fabric becomes more wrinkle resistant, stronger, and mildew resistant
