Summary:
A lively introduction to fabric.

This video is a fast-paced introduction to fabric science. Your students will learn about fabrics that repair broken hearts, stop bullets, fight fire, stop water, protect against outer space, and enable people to fly.

Viewers tour a modern textile mill and watch raw acrylic become fabric. They see yarn spun by a trditional spinning wheel and by modern technology. They see fabric created by both a traditional hand loom and by high-speed computerized machines.

Learn:
• What is weaving and how looms turn into fabrics.
• How weave variations determine the qualities of fabric.
• How to recognize the three basic weaves.
• What is knitting? How does woven fabric differ from knitted fabric?
