"Textile fibers" seems off, since both asbestos and sinew are listed here.

Textile fibers section[edit]

Do we really need this? It is just an abbreviated list of fibers, and seems to serve only to make the template longer, in my opinion. We already have a link to fiber at the bottom in 'related'. Also many of the fibers listed are rarely used in fabric. Loggie (talk) 17:54, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

I disagree, this section is both necessary and invaluable. The vest majority of the textiles mentioned are used frequently in fabrics. Perhaps not by high street retailers, but often by designers. Further, those fabrics that aren't commonly used, of which there are very few, have a great historical relevance to the history of textiles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:32, 19 October 2011 (UTC)


I recommend removing Capilene from this list. It only redirects to the Patagonia article, which doesn't mention Capilene at all. I can't find anything on the internet about Capilene except from Patagonia here, and it doesn't strike me as dramatically different than textiles produced by other companies, which simply don't bother to name their products. However, I don't know much about fabrics. Sondra.kinsey (talk) 13:20, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
