Nylon yarns are synthetic fibers that are made to resemble natural fibers and have the same touch. Originally, nylon was made to replace silk. Since nylon is durable and flexible yet cheaper than natural fiber, it becomes a good choice for textile and fabric making when natural fiber such as wool is more expensive nowadays. Nylon is also an alternative choice for other type of yarns in variety of clothes making or home textiles. When choosing nylon yarns, it is important to consider the type of work they are used in. Nylon yarns may not be suitable for clothing materials, as they sometimes have rough surface. They are more suitable for materials that need to be durable such as tape or strap making. For example, the fabrics that are used for baby towels should be smooth and soft and should not cause skin irritation. As such, choosing what type of yarns to use in fabric making is considerably important and should not be overlooked no matter what.
