petroleum-based manufactured fibers at BurdaStyle

Are you sick of all this fabric-geek-tech stuff yet, or are you enjoying the real nitty-gritty of how fabric is made?

I have a new post on the BurdaStyle blog this month covering manufactured fibers like polyester, nylon, spandex, and the new and exciting microfibers.

If this is all a bit too much technical detail for you, don’t despair. Next month I’ll come up a level and will use this fundamental information to start discussing how the fabrics made from these different types of fibers can be best used.



  1. I love this! I want to know more!

  2. I’m not sure about others, but I’ve really enjoyed the posts about how fabric is made. I’ve found them really interesting… Please keep going!

    Always interested in seeing how things are made. Especially things that I use quite often (fabric!)

    I always thought of my self as a bit of a nerd, but this series is not for me. I prefer the sewing tutorials or pattern related posts. 🙂 Sounds like the next installment of this series might be more up my alley (more practical information).
