Fabric Reference presents a complete and up-to-date source of the highly technical basics of textile science, from fibers to finished fabrics. Specially prepared graphics, illustrations, comparison tables, and flow charts make the process of creating modern fabrics clear to both students and instructors. Key terms (including trademarks) are emphasized, and practical applications such as care, selection for various uses, comfort in cold or hot weather, safety from UV radiation, and conservation topics are all discussed more fully than in other texts. A unique companion fabric dictionary/swatchbook (Fabric Glossary) is available.

Fabric Reference, fourth edition
Mary Humphries has nearly sixty years of experience in the textile field, working in industry, communications, and education. Her textbook provides up-to-date information on this fast-moving, highly technical field. Fabric Reference covers all of the elements that go into making a fabric, offering the most-current information in a condensed format, presented in clear language and well-illustrated.
Fabric Reference includes lists of links to its companion dictionary and swatch book, Fabric Glossary. Review Questions and Investigations for each main section encourage and further the essential application of technical information as study progresses. A unique perspective on textile science is presented by leading the reader from the detailed technical discussion of fibers, yarns, fabric constructions, and finishes covered by all texts to a consistent focus on the actual fabrics. Fabric Referencewill continue to serve as a valuable reference–even after a course of study is completed–in almost any area of work involving fabrics.
Besides covering the basics of how fabrics behave and why, Fabric Reference provides extensive information on care, testing, SI units, and textiles and ecology.
