The main Natural textiles are Cotton, Silk, Denim, Flannel, Hemp, Leather, Linen, Velvet, Wool; The synthetic textiles include Nylon, Polyester, Acetate, Acrylic, Polar Fleece, Rayon, and Spandex.
Fabrics which are generally classed as natural ( Cotton, Silk, Linen, etc) and synthetic (Acrylic, Polyester, Nylon ) and a blend of both are all equally suitable for making clothes. But some fabrics are a little bit more preferred than others. Woven fabric is best for making tailored clothes while knits are best for making form-fitting clothes/activewear.
