“Natural fibers are made from plant, animal and mineral sources.  Natural fibers can be classified according to their origin.

Fibers or fibres (see spelling differences) are a class of hair-like materials that are continuous filaments or are in discrete elongated pieces, similar to pieces of thread.  They can be spun into filaments, thread, or rope. They can be used as a component of composite materials.  They can also be matted into sheets to make products such as paper or felt.  Fibers are of three types: natural fiber, cellulose fiber, and synthetic fiber. The earliest evidence for humans using fibers is the discovery of wool and dyed flax fibers found in a prehistoric cave in the Republic of Georgia that date back to 36,000 BP.”
