- Does not absorb water
- Damage resistant to oil and many chemicals
- Dries quickly
Which of the following is a synthetic fibre? (a) Wool (b) Linen (c) Nylon (d) Silk
Among the following, nylon is a synthetic fibre. These are man-made fibres which are produced by a chemical process. Through the polymerization process, they are produced. Both partially synthetic and entirely synthetic fibres are permitted. Chemicals are used to generate fully synthetic fibres like nylon, polyester, and acrylic, while natural polymers are the starting point for semi-synthetic fibres like rayon.
