Excerpt from Study of Fabrics The object of this book is to give the reader a knowledge of the various textile fibers, their properties in regard to warmth and hygiene, their cleansing and laundering possibilities; and such understanding of the processes of manufacture as will enable her to judge, intelligently, good and bad materials, adulterations, prices, weaves, etc. Upon woman devolves the responsibility of the economical expenditure of the family income; it is her duty to know that she is receiving the worth of her money, and, yet, most women are dependent upon the word of the clerk, very often far more ignorant than the purchaser. The standard of materials will never be raised to its proper level, until the consumers are intelligent enough to make the demand. A detailed study is made of each of the common textile fibers used for household purposes - cotton, linen, wool, and silk - taking up the growth, manufacture, physical, and chemical properties with special emphasis on the practical household tests which may be used in detecting adulterations and judging of the quality. Laundry problems are discussed at some length dealing with the cleansing agents commonly used in the laundry and the principles which should govern a choice of the method best suited to individual conditions.
