Textile Fibers Are Special Many fibrous materials are not suitable to make into fabrics, e.g., corn silk or wood slivers. Textile fibers must have certain properties: flexible, thin (but not too thin), long (enough), cohesive, and strong(enough).Textile fibers must be flexible. Wood fibers (unlessprocessed, as into pulp) do not bend easily-you can-not make fabrics from slivers! Textile fibers are also very thin-long in relation to diameter. To be mechanically spun into yarn-drawn out and twisted-staple fibers must have sufficient length, strength, and cohe-siveness (fiber-to-fiber friction). Many seed fibers are too short, weak, and slippery to spin into yarn; kapok, for instance, can be used only for stuffing. Of course, for a fiber to be used a great deal, there must be a reasonable supply and price
