This video is an introduction to fabric science. Your students will learn about fabrics that repair broken hearts, stop bullets, fight fire, stop water, protect against outer space, and enable people to fly.

Viewers tour a modern textile mill and watch raw acrylic become fabric. They see yarn spun by a traditional spinning wheel and by modern technology. They see fabric created by both a traditional hand loom and by high-speed computerized machines.


A useful resource for home economics classes - School Library Journal
