Natural fibers can be extracted from the stems or leaves of many plants. Cotton is the most widely used natural fiber. Protein fibers (i.e., wool) come from the hair of animals, as well as the silk of the silkworm.
Synthetic manufactured fibers are produced from chemicals made from refined petroleum or natural gas. The main synthetic fibers are polyester, nylon, acrylic, polyolefin, and spandex.
