What are the properties and uses and advantages and disadvantages of synthetic fibers?

The obvious is advantage is simply due to production. Synthetic fibres can be produced on mass in factories (while natural fibres may need the producer to rear animals or grow plants). Synthetic fibres can also be developed to fill certain roles (so they may be specifically made to be water proof). Another advantage is that synthetic fibres do not decompose as easily as natural fibres.



The main disadvantage is that some synthetic fibres can have negative impacts upon the body (in some cases it can be likened to wearing a bin bag). The production of synthetic fibres may also involve fossil fuels (like oil). As well as this synthetic fibres can cause environmental harm, for the very reason that they do not easily degrade.
