From the Back Cover:

Textiles, ninth edition, is designed to be a comprehensive text for the introductory textiles student with emphasis on the fundamental principles of serviceability of textiles and textile production. This new edition continues its clear and logical presentation of topics with the most up-to-date information accompanied by the extensive use of visuals.

Photographs and diagrams that help students understand and learn the information remain a major part of the book. Basic fibers, yarns, fabrics, and finishes continue to be the emphasis.

  • Care of textiles was expanded with the addition of home solvent cleaning, horizontal and vertical axis washing machines, ventless drying, alternates to dry cleaning, and new ingredients in detergents or compounds available for home use.
