Textile Notes: Fiber ID

Research is creating new knowledge.

Neil Armstrong

You can follow the chart to understand your fiber’s origin easily. Happy identification!

  • Do not forget to prepare your fiber and choose a proper microscope for the Microscopic Analysis. Also, do not forget to do replicas (at least 3).
  • You will only need a tiny piece of fabric for your microscopic analysis. 
  • You will only need 1-3 fiber to test flammability. 
  • Be very careful with the solubility test when using acids or other solvents.
