The Wonderful Wide World of Fibres


I am going to teach you that there is fibre and there are fibres. They are very different.

The first type I am going to tell you about are textile fibres. These are long, thin strands of material made by plants, animals, or humans. They play a huge role in our everyday lifestyle; from the clothes we wear to things like towels, rope, sheets, brushes, paper, and rubber.

The second type of fibre is something that our body relies on to live. This ingredient which is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes is imperative to keep our digestive system healthy.

If you don’t understand much about fibre and fibres, then you should really pay attention to my story!
