Acrylic is a synthetic fibre made from the polymer, polyacrylonitrile. It was first manufactured by DuPont in the mid-1940s under the trademark Orlon. For the next decade, it was not manufactured in huge quantities. It is first manufactured as a filament, after which it is cut into short, staple lengths and spun into yarn.

Even as new yarn is developed, one that merits looking at is cotton-rich poly (lactic acid) fibre. The fibres are blended together in certain proportions so that the final product has all the positive attributes, say R. Guruprasad, G. Krishna Prasad, G.T.V. Prabu and T. Senthilkumar.

There is no perfect fibre that can impart all desirable properties required. So, cotton is generally blended with other fibres like polyester, viscose or acrylic to produce blended yarn and fabric meeting different requirements.

Nylon is a very useful synthetic material. It is a polymer with very long, heavy molecules made up of small endlessly repeating segments of atoms that can be moulded into any product or drawn into fibres for making fabrics. Discovered in 1930, nylon is not one single substance, but a name given to a whole family of very similar materials called polyamides.
