Fabric Reference includes lists of  links to its companion dictionary and swatch book, Fabric Glossary. Review Questions and Investigations for each main section encourage and further the essential application of technical information as study progresses. A unique perspective on textile science is presented by leading the reader from the detailed technical discussion of fibers, yarns, fabric constructions, and finishes covered by all texts to a consistent focus on the actual fabrics. Fabric Reference will continue to serve as a valuable reference—even after a course of study is completed—in almost any area of work involving fabrics. Mary Humphries has nearly sixty years of experience in the textile field, working in industry, communications, and education. Her textbook provides up-to-date information on this fast-moving, highly technical field. Fabric Reference covers all of the elements that go into making a fabric, offering the most-current information in a condensed format, presented in clear language and well-illustrated.
