Correct answer: (b) fibre → yarn → fabric

Explanation: Yarn is a long, continuous thread made of natural or synthetic fibres. 

Yarn can be of different types according to their structure:

  • A single yarn is produced by twisting staple fibers together.
  • A ply yarn is produced by twisting two or more single yarns together.
  • A cord yarn is produced by twisting two or more ply or folded yarn.

The process of converting fibre into fabric involves spinning and weaving or knitting.

Spinning is the process of making yarn from fibres.

Weaving and knitting are the two methods to convert yarn into fabric. Weaving is the process of arranging two sets of yarn together to make a fabric whereas in knitting, a single yarn is used to make a fabric.

 The steps of making fabric can be written as:

Obtaining fibre

Preparation of yarn 

When two sets of yarn are involved, yarns are woven on looms to make a fabric.

The fabrics produced are dyed and treated with chemicals.
