9780135005972: Fabric Glossary

The Fabric Glossary offers an illustrated fabric dictionary that includes scanned samples and a space for mounting actual swatches. Designed as a complement to the Fabric Reference, this book explores the characteristics of the multitude of fabrics we know by name. Fabrics are grouped in “Files” of like materials and over 600 names and terms are illustrated and/or explained. Topics include major fiber types, most kinds of yarns, all categories of weaves, knits and other constructions such as tufted, lace, felt, nonwoven, and stitchbonded. Also covered are effects of finishing, including examples related to dyeing, printing, and other applied design.

From the Back Cover:

Fabric Glossary offers a unique dual aid for anyone studying, working with, or interested in textiles. It is a fabric dictionary, covering some 600 textile terms, to address the most-frequently asked question, "What is it called?" It distinguishes fabrics, one from another, by name, construction details, and origin, all visually enhanced with clear photos. Many of these show the fabric "dissected" to reveal significant or essential aspects of structure. At the same time, it serves as a superb swatch book, allowing for the mounting of actual samples of fabric, which are the best possible illustrations of any individual material.

Fabric Glossary is also designed as a companion in textiles study to Fabric Reference, which covers the technical specifics that contribute to each "name fabric;" links to Fabric Glossary are given at all stages in Fabric Reference, and indexed there as well. Both of these books are notable in that either (or both) of them would be used even more after a course of study is completed—in almost any area of work involving fabrics!
