The Fabric Glossary offers an illustrated fabric dictionary that includes scanned samples and a space for mounting actual swatches. Designed as a complement to the Fabric Reference, this book explores the characteristics of the multitude of fabrics we know by name. Fabrics are grouped in “Files” of like materials and over 600 names and terms are illustrated and/or explained. Topics include major fiber types, most kinds of yarns, all categories of weaves, knits and other constructions such as tufted, lace, felt, nonwoven, and stitchbonded. Also covered are effects of finishing, including examples related to dyeing, printing, and other applied design.
