Staple fibers can be defined as a fiber of discrete length of any structure, which can be drawn into yarn and can be both natural and synthetic. These fibers are natural, cellulosic, or synthetic fibers with variable lengths, and are available in a broad range of compositions. Staple fibers are made of flax, hemp, wool, or raw cotton, of which wool and cotton are the most commonly used raw materials. These fibers can also be manufactured using other raw materials, such as mohair, flax, alpaca, and angora, among others. Staple fibre yarns are made from short fibers bound together by twisting. These fibers can be natural (silk, flax, jute, wool, cotton) or man-made (acrylic, polyester, nylon, viscose).
Staple fibers are used in a variety of applications such as construction, automotive, personal care and hygiene, apparel, and home furnishing, among others. Both filament fiber and staple fiber refer to textile fibers of discrete length. The staple length is the characteristic fiber length of a sample of staple fibers. It is an important criterion for spinning yarns, as it aids in cohesion and twisting. Having a good staple length is crucial to yarn spinning. Natural staple fibers are the most common and widely used type of fiber, as they tend to be long and uniform. Both natural and synthetic fibers are equally useful for making textiles. They are less absorbent and minimally conductive, making them a popular choice for many different applications.
