Fiber I.D. Chart

Using a 'Bic lighter' burn just one filament of fiber and compare how it burns with this chart. Caution about blended yarns since they can confuse ones observations. There are various fibers to ID in this process: warps, wefts, pile yarns, and sometimes added-on fringes. Be careful and burn your extracted fibers over an ash tray or the kitchen sink for safety.
