Excerpt from Fibres Used in Textile and Allied Industries Mineral Fibres - Apart from finely spun glass, slag wool, and the metal threads used for embroidery and similar purposes, the only representatives of this group are the different varieties of asbestos. The fibres of asbestos are relatively long and often of ex treme fineness, and are very soft and lustrous, though lacking in strength. For Spinning or weaving they are usually mixed with a vegetable fibre which is subsequently removed by ignition. Asbestos consists in the main of magnesium silicate and calcium silicate, with smaller quantities of other constituents. Animal fibres.-the animal fibres used in the textile and allied industries are either hairs from various animals, or the silk produced by the silkworm and the larvae of other moths. Most of the hair fibres woven into textile materials are derived from sheep, goats and camels, though the hair of many other. Animals is also used to a limited extent.
