State the characteristics of synthetic fibres.
A synthetic fibre is made of small units which are joined together. These units are made of chemical substances. Such small units combine to form a large single unit called a polymer. Hence, a polymer is made of many repeating units. Following are the characteristics of synthetic fibres:
● Synthetic fibres absorb very less water and they dry up quickly.
● They are durable and are less expensive.
● They are readily available and are easy to maintain.
● Due to such unique properties, synthetic fibres are used to make dress materials.
