Abstract: The term "textile" was traditionally used to define fabrics and the steps involved in manufacturing of woven fabrics. For a longer period, it involves the following; i) Staple fibers and filaments used in the manufacturing of yarns, woven, knitted and nonwoven fabrics. ii) Yarns of different types made up of natural or man-made fibers. iii) Fabrics of several categories and other textile products made directly from fibers or from yarns. iv) Home textiles, medical textiles, protective textiles, and apparels are manufactured from the above which retain the core properties of textiles like mechanical properties, flexibility, and integrity of structure and drape of the fabrics. Most of the textile fabrics exhibits planar structures manufactured by interlacing, looping or entangling yarns or fibers in a discrete manner. In a broader term, yarns are continuous strands textile fibers. These fibers must exhibit the required physical and chemical properties that are necessary of the end applications. So, textile fibers can be defined as the basic physical structures or elements used in textile products. The structure of every fiber consists of several individual long molecular chains having some specific chemical structure. This book will provide an insight to the reader and any student to understand the manufacturing, chemical and physical attributes of industrial raw material and deep understanding of the importance of the industry in our country.
