there are 6 types of textiles that will help you prepare you for this job.


can be created from many natural sources (animal hair or fur, insect cocoons as with silk worm cocoons),as well as semisynthetic methods that use naturally-occurring polymers, and synthetic methods that use polymer-based materials, and even minerals such as metals to make foils and wires


hair-like materials (they look like threads) that form the building blocks from which yarn and fabric are made.

Polyester is a synthetic fiber derived from coal, air, water, and petroleum. Developed in a 20th-century laboratory, polyester fibers are formed from a chemical reaction between an acid and alcohol

a generic designation for a family of synthetic polymers, more specifically aliphatic or semi-aromatic polyamaides . They can be melt processed into fibres, films or shapes


are synthetic fibers made from a polymer  with an average molecular weight of ~100,000, about 1900 monomer units. To be called acrylic in the U.S, the polymer must contain at least 85% acrylonitrile monomer.


a manufactured regenerated cellulose fiber. It is made from purified cellulose, primarily from wood pulp, which is chemically converted into a soluble compound


Acetate is derived from cellulose by reacting purified cellulose from wood pulp with acetic acid and acetic anhydride in the presence of sulfuric acid.


Spandex is a synthetic polymer. Chemically, it is made up of a long-chain polyglycol combined with a short diisocyanate, and contains at least 85% polyurethane.
