Record Type: concept
animal fiber (natural fiber, fiber, ... Materials (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Any fiber obtained from animal sources, for example sheep wool, alpaca, mohair, angora, and silk. In general, animal fibers do not burn as readily as vegetable fibers, but instead tend to char and emit mildly nitrogenous odors characteristic of burnt hair. Except for silk, all animal fibers can be microscopically characterized by their tiny surface scales and center shaft.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Vezels die van dieren afkomstig zijn, bijvoorbeeld wol van schapen of alpaca's, mohair, angora en zijde. In het algemeen verbranden dierlijke vezels minder snel dan plantaardige. In plaats daarvan verschroeien ze en geven ze de lichte stikstofgeur af die kenmerkend is voor verbrand haar. Behalve zijde kunnen alle dierlijke vezels microscopisch worden gekarakteriseerd door de kleine schubben op het oppervlak van de vezel en door de centrale schacht.
