2. arpita learning objectives To understand the meaning of the term textile. Classify different types of fibers , yarns and to learn at least two examples of each type. Make wise selection of textile products for specific uses in our day to day life. To learn about the fabric construction and finishes given to each type. Care of textile products. 3. arpita What is a textile?? A textile is a flexible material comprised of a network of natural or artificial fibers often referred to as thread or yarn. Yarn is produced by spinning raw wool fibers, linen, cotton, or other material on a spinning wheel to produce long strands known as yarn.[1] Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting, or pressing 4. arpita Classification and identification of textile fibers 5. arpita Textile fibres ( based on source) There are two types of fibers Natural fibers they are obtained from nature & are of 3 types: vegetable fibers, animal fibers & mineral fibers Manmade fibers they are obtained in various way, there are 4 types of manmade fibers: synthetic, re-generated, metallic& mineral fibers 6. arpita Length based classification Based on there length they are staple or filament . Staple are short, all natural fibres except silk are staple Filament fibres are continuous and are measured in metres, All manmade fibres are filament 7. arpita Content based classification (they can be both natural or man made fibres) Cellulose Fibres Protein fibres Mineral fibres 8. arpita Examples: Cellulose----- cotton rayon Protein ----- silk wool, Mineral------ asbestos 9. arpita Identification of fibre By feel By length By lustre By texture 10. arpita Characteristics of vegetable& animal fibers Vegetable fibers are strong with a crisp feel Good heat Non resilient and crease easily Stronger when wet than dry Moth proof Affected by mildew in damp conditions Can be bleached Not harmed by alkalis Affected by acids Animal fibers are soft to feel Poor heat Stronger wet when dry Absorbent Attacked by moths Not affected by mildew easily Damaged by sunlight& alkalis Affected by chlorine bleach 11. arpita Vegetable fibers Vegetable fibers are obtained from plant cells Examples are- cotton, linen , jute, ramie , hemp , sisal, & coir 12. arpita Cotton fibers This fibre is obtained from the seeds of cotton plant, which grows 1-2 meters tall . 13. arpita Advantages & limitations of cotton fibers Advantages are------- -can be dyed easily Good conductor of heat Durable since fibre is strong Easily dry- cleaned. Good absorbency power Textured effects are easily available. Highly versatile Processed into wide range of fabrics limitations are:-------- Cotton creases easily Tends to shrink when washed Sheds lint Prone to mildew attacks Flammable Damaged by acids Takes longer time to dry When exposed to sunlight it turns yellow . 14. arpita Linen fibers This fiber is obtained from the stem of the flax plant .this is an annual plant growing maximum about 40 inches. 15. arpita Advantages & limitations of linen fibre Advantages are----- More durable then cotton also. Withstands constant washing . Soiling is easily removed from this. Easy to launder . Stronger when in wet condition. Not effected by sunlight. Good conductor of heat. Can withstand high ironing temperatures . Limitations are:---------- Creases & shrinks easily Prone to mildew attacks It does not have good affinity for dyes Takes long time to dry Linen is flammable It is expensive 16. arpita JUTE Obtained from stems of jute plant Advantages---it is inexpensive & can be blended with other fibres,it resists water, fire, mildew and rot. It dyes easily. Dis advantages---are weak & non- durable, difficult to bleach, difficult to 17. arpita Ramie, hemp, sisal, & kapok Ramie is obtained from stems of plant, it is a woody fibre , it is also known as china grass & is used for making rope, twine, sacking & nets. Hemp is also obtained from stems of plant & is used for manufacturing carpets & rags, its used to to make sacks & canvas Sisal is obtained from the leaves of a plant, resembles cactus .it is used to make twine , rope, sacking& nets Kapok is obtained from seeds of the cotton tree& are smooth & light, it is used for filling of cushions. 18. arpita Coir & Pina It is obtained from coconut husk It is used in making rope & mats It is also used for stuffing upholstered furniture's used for making bags too. Pina obtained from the leaves of pineapple plants Used for mats& bags 19. arpita Animal fibers These are derived from fur of various animals Silk is derived from insect larvae 20. arpita wool Obtained from fleece of sheep Wool is graded under 4 classes: fine, medium, long & carpet wools 21. arpita Advantages & limitations of wool Advantages-------- Comfortable for wear Dyes easily Does not soil easily Can be laundered easily Flameproof Shrink proof Moth resistant Limitations-------- Takes long time to dry Weak fibers Stretches easily Good quality is expensive damaged by moth May produce allergic reaction to skin 22. arpita silk The finest quality of raw silk is obtained from the cocoon of the bombyx mori, a type f silkworm 23. arpita Silk is of 2 types cultivated& wild silk Important wild silks are --- Tussar from india & china , they have a tan colour Muga silk from assam Others-- dupionsilk, rawsilk, spun silk 24. arpita Advantages & limitations of silk Advantages Soft feel & lustre Elegant to look at Strongest natural fibre Bad conductor of heat White silk can be bleached Limitations---- Silk is weakened by sunlight Becomes weaker when wet Weakened at high temperatures Sensitive to acid Very costly 25. arpita NATURAL MINERAL FIBRES Asbestos is a natural mineral fibre It is obtained from rocks It is acid proof , rust proof & flame proof Can withstand extreme temperatures It is used for making fire fighting suits 26. arpita Man- made 1. Synthetic fibre 2. Re- generated fibers 3. Metallic fibers 4. Mineral fibers 27. arpita Synthetic fibers 1. Polyester . 2. Nylon ( polyamide) 3. Others are----- polyethylene,polyvinyl, polypropylene,polyacrylon,,acrylics& mod acrylics, 28. arpita Polyester fibres------------------- is composed by mixing alcohol with acid Advantages Fibre is very strong Crease resistant Requires no ironing Resists soiling as the fibers are very smooth Dries rapidly Can be washed easily Resistant to acids & alkalis Can be blended with other fibers Limitations attracts dust Has low absorbency Does not dye easily Attracts grease Has low melting points At high temperatures produces poisonous fumes 29. arpita Polyester fibre ( used for making bed& table linen net curtains, fillings for pillows & quilts). 30. arpita Nylon fibres Advantages Strong & durable Crease resistant Moth & mildew resistant Easy to launder Dries quickly Fabrics needs no ironing Limitations Damaged by sunlight Melts in fire Hard to remove stains from it Produces harmful fumes 31. arpita Nylon fibres (used for making bed linen , soft furnishings ) 32. arpita Other synthetic fibres are : Acrylics trade names are dralon, courtelle, orlon, acrilan blankets , carpets . Mod acrylics trade names are teklan. Used for soft furnishings, upholstery , blankets. Polypropylene such as spunstron used for making of carpets . Polyethylene such as courlene used for upholstery 33. arpita Re-generated fibres A) Re generated cellulosic fibres : These are made from a substance retrieved from natural sources , most commonly cellulose, which is converted into fibre form( Example is viscose rayon) . Used for making soft furnishings & carpets .the trade name of viscose rayon is viloft Other forms of rayon are: acetate & tri acetate B) Re generated protein fibres : These fibres have been obtained from protein such as milk, corn, soyabeans. 34. arpita Regenerated fibres Cellulosic fibres Protein fibre 35. arpita Viscose rayon- is obtained from wood pulp Advantages Light weight & heavy Durable Absorbent Good affinity for dyes Can be bleached Limitations It is weak Creases badly Does not dry easily Prone to mildew Requires low ironing temperatures 36. arpita Man made mineral fibres Glass fibres produced by heating silica, sand, limeston e & other minerals These are non absorbent, easily laundered ,& highly fire proof 37. arpita Metallic fibres A manufactured fiber composed of metal, plastic-coated metal, metal-coated plastic, or a core completely covered by metal. Coated metallic filaments do not tarnish. When suitable adhesives and films are used, they are not affected by salt water, chlorinated water in swimming pools or climatic conditions. Metallic filaments are used for decorative purposes in apparel, draperies, laces, military uniform decorations, ribbons, table linens, and upholstery. In the more common process for production, aluminum foil is coated on one or both sides with adhesive to which the desired coloring matter has been added. A sheet of transparent plastic film is applied to each side of the adhesive-coated foil. The assembly is then slit into narrow widths. 38. arpita Metallic fibres 39. arpita Process of making fibre to fabrics fibres To make yarns spun weaved knitted felted bonded To make Un finished fabrics 40. arpita Conti Several treatments Given to make
