give 5 differences between natural and synthetic fibre

The differences are :

 Natural FibreSynthetic Fibre
1Natural fibers are fibers that are found in nature. Ex: Wool, silk, and cotton etc.These fibres are man made or simply prepared in lab. Ex: Nylon, Teflon etc.
2They are good absorbents and so able to absorb heat, temperature, cold , sweat etc. depending on conditions and nature of fibres.They do not have such pores as they are made up of chemicals and so do not act as good absorbents.
3No spinning process is required for filament production.Melting, wet or dry spinning processes are used for filament production.
4Comfortable in use.Not as comfortable as natural fibres.
5Their length is naturally obtained and it is not possible to change the fibre structure.Their lengths can be controlled by man and the fibres can easily be changed to different structures.

Depending on the origin of a fiber, it can be classified as natural or synthetic. The fibers obtained from plants and animals are called natural fibers. Examples of natural fibers include cotton, jute, wool, and silk. Usually natural fibers tend to wrinkle and crease more easily than artificial fibers. They breathe more easily and respond to change in temperature and different climates.On the other hand, those made artificially, using chemicals, are known as synthetic fibers. Rayon, nylon, acrylic, and polyester are examples of the same. Synthetic fibers are not as porous as natural fibers and are also not as good as an adsorbent. However they wrinkle less and have fewer creases.Hope this answer helps,Cheers !!
