Fiber theory

This course provides an overview of the variety of fibers – from natural and synthetic fibers, through to the end product as a yarn or plied yarn. The particular focus here is on answering questions such as “What fibers are there?” and “What is the difference between the fiber types and how they are made?”. This course provides an excellent basis for all other training courses at the Groz-Beckert Academy.
