In this class we'll detail the process from fiber to textile, show you loads of samples and dig into the terminology that will deeply improve your experience whether you are a textile lover already or needing a little help on a new venture. We'll start by demystifying the major fiber types through a step-by-step introduction to cotton, wool, silk, linen and their man-made counterparts. Next, we'll discuss woven fabrics vs. knit fabrics and how each of these are constructed.
