Exploring Textile Fiber Abbreviations: From Plant to Man-Made Fibers

In the world of textiles, understanding fiber abbreviations is crucial for professionals and enthusiasts alike. From natural plant fibers to synthetic materials, each abbreviation represents a unique characteristic and application.

We start our journey with plant fibers, where classics like Cotton (CO) and Linen (LI) reign supreme for their breathability and comfort. Moving on, we delve into the strength and versatility of Abaca (AB) and Hemp (HA), followed by the smoothness of Ramie (RA).

Transitioning to animal fibers, we encounter the luxurious textures of Wool (WO) and Silk (SE), alongside the warmth of Angora (WA) and the exclusivity of Vicuña (WG). From there, we explore the lightweight insulation of Camelhair (WK) and the resilience of Llama (WL), among others.

Regenerated fibers offer a blend of natural and synthetic qualities, with Viscose (VI) and Cupro (CU) leading the way in versatility and sustainability. Meanwhile, man-made fibers like Polyester (PL) and Polyamide (PA) offer durability and resistance, while Elastane (EA) provides essential stretch and flexibility.

At the heart of it all, metallic fibers (ME) add a touch of innovation and aesthetics to the mix.
