Types of Natural Fibers Used to Manufacture Clothes
Generally, organizations specializing in manufacturing natural fiber clothing use strong elastic fibers, vegetable fibers or protein fibers. These natural fibers have their own properties. Here are some natural fibers that are used in such type of clothing:
Silk is known for its strength and resiliency. It is the strongest of all natural fibers. Processing care is taken so that there is no negative impact on the environment and no harsh chemicals are used on silk.
The fallacy that hemp fibers contain any narcotic chemicals is not true at all. Hemp is created from the stems of the Cannabis sativa plant, and is one of the world’s most eco-friendly natural fibers. The process of farming hemp should be taken with care. Farming requires little water. It can grow easily without the use of any pesticides or herbicides. Moreover, the long roots of hemp plant prevent soil erosion.
China Grass, or Ramie, as it is often called, is one of the strongest natural fibers used in natural fiber clothing. It is a stem fiber and has been used since ancient times. This fiber is a smooth, refined and durable natural fabric, and is very comfortable to wear during warm weather.
