FCS 2200 - Textiles

A wide range of textile products exist on the market. Textile products are composed of six general components that, in different compensations, give a textile product its individual characteristics. These general components are fiber content, yarn structure, fabric construction, color, surface design and finish.
It is important for the student to have a thorough knowledge of these components and how they work together to affect fabric behavior, along with a knowledge of current textile labeling laws and requirements related to selection and care of textile products.
