Synthetic fibres are man-made fibres that come from chemical resources. Synthetic fibres are continuous filament fibres so that means that the fibres come in long lengths and so it doesn't have to be spun out into yarn. Synthetic fibres are manufactured using plant materials and minerals: viscose comes from pine trees or petrochemicals, while acrylic, nylon and polyester come from oil and coal.

Synthetic Fibers Manufactured Fibers

Synthetic fibers are not natural. They are purely man made and can not be found in nature. Many synthetic materials are made by a process of synthesis. Fibers which aren't synthetic can be found in nature.

Tthere is no difference between manufactured and synthetic fibers. Manufactured literally means hand (manu as in manual) made (factured as in factory), and synthetic means artificial; not found in nature. Synthetic fibers are made.

Synthetic fibers are man-made, such as nylon or polyester, as opposed to natural fibers such as cotton or silk.

Synthetic Fibers have a number of qualities which natural fibers do not; perhaps the most important being that they make profits for large chemical industries.
