Manufactured/Manmade fibers are fibers that go through chemical processing to be solubilized and then run through a spinneret to form yarns.
The spinneret is like a shower head, the solution passes though one end and comes out the other as yarn. This process is called extrusion; different opening shapes in a spinneret determine the shape of the fibers that come out. The shape can effect fiber size, behaviour and appearance.
Manmade fibers from cellulosic sources such as wood pulp should not be confused with natural cellulosic fibers such as linen, hemp, or cotton. To read more on natural fibers read our last post and to learn more about the different types of Cotton check out our Cotton post!
Synthetic fibers are a sub group of manmade/ manufactured fibers; synthetic refers specifically to fibers derived from petroleum byproducts.
