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.

Fabric Reference will continue to serve as a valuable reference—even after a course of study is completed—in almost any area of work involving fabrics. 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.

From the Publisher:

In Fabric Reference, Humphries has created a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to fabric principles and behaviors. The book traces the elements of fabric construction. Fabric performance, a very technical subject, is presented in an accessible, non-technical language, assuming little or no prior knowledge of the subject.

From the Back Cover:
