Yarn

threadcotton yarnyarns
A textile is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibers (yarn or thread).
Yarn is a long continuous length of interlocked fibres, suitable for use in the production of textiles, sewing, crocheting, knitting, weaving, embroidery, or ropemaking.

Wool

fleecewool tradefleeces
Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, hemp, or other materials to produce long strands. Textiles are made from many materials, with four main sources: animal (wool, silk), plant (cotton, flax, jute, bamboo), mineral (asbestos, glass fibre), and synthetic (nylon, polyester, acrylic, rayon).
Wool is the textile fiber obtained from sheep and other animals, including cashmere and mohair from goats, qiviut from muskoxen, from hide and fur clothing from bison, angora from rabbits, and other types of wool from camelids; additionally, the Highland and the Mangalica breeds of cattle and swine, respectively, possess woolly coats.

Weaving

Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting or tatting, felting, or braiding.
Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth.

Hemp

Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, hemp, or other materials to produce long strands.
It can be refined into a variety of commercial items, including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Knitting

Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting or tatting, felting, or braiding.
Knitting is a method by which yarn is manipulated to create a textile or fabric; it is used in many types of garments.

Crochet

Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting or tatting, felting, or braiding.
Crochet is a process of creating textiles by using a crochet hook to interlock loops of yarn, thread, or strands of other materials.

A textile is any material made of interlacing fibres, including carpeting and geotextiles. Miscellaneous uses include flags, backpacks, tents, nets, handkerchiefs, cleaning rags, transportation devices such as balloons, kites, sails, and parachutes; textiles are also used to provide strengthening in composite materials such as fibreglass and industrial geotextiles.
Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain.

Technical textile

technical textilesPerformance fabricsagrotextiles
Textiles for industrial purposes, and chosen for characteristics other than their appearance, are commonly referred to as technical textiles. Technical textiles include textile structures for automotive applications, medical textiles (e.g. implants), geotextiles (reinforcement of embankments), agrotextiles (textiles for crop protection), protective clothing (e.g. against heat and radiation for fire fighter clothing, against molten metals for welders, stab protection, and bullet proof vests).
A technical textile is a textile product manufactured for non-aesthetic purposes, where function is the primary criterion.
