SWICOFIL - Yarn and fiber expert.

FIBERCHART

The complete overview of all materials existing in terms of yarn and fibers.
All the materials that can be transformed into yarn and fibers - whereas Swicofil is able to source most of the below listed materials.

 
  • natural
    yarn and fibers that grow by nature
     
  • artificial
    materials whose raw materials originate from nature but are somehow (chemically) transformed in structure / by transformation of natural polymers
     
  • synthetic
    materials made from synthetic polymers
     
  • inorganic
    materials where there are no polymers involved
