Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This book helps readers understand how the components of textiles–fiber, yarn, fabric, dye, and finish–contribute to the performance of products for specific end uses. With a focus on the why behind the material, it encourages students to understand and predict textile properties and performance. This edition emphasizes the global environment and offers separate chapters in fiber properties; fabrics and structures; and nonwoven fabrics. Finishes are now separated into two chapters (physical/mechanical finishes and chemical finishes) and Take a Closer look sections bring an in-depth perspective to select chapter topics.
