Staple is a term referring to fiber that comes in discrete and consistent lengths, measured in millimeters. It is often used in the phrase, "staple length" to describe exactly what lengths the fibers are on average. The staple length of a fiber is one of the major determining factors when spinning yarn.

Small fibers approximately 1-1/2 inches in length with crimp in them used to spin yarn or sewing thread. When twisted together, the crimp locks the fibers together increasing the strength of the thread. We spin the following staple fibers into sewing threads: CS & CP Cotton, Polyester, Lyocell®, Kevlar®, and Nomex®. Spun threads have the following characteristics: 1. Fibrous or fuzzy surface contributing to a soft hand, low sheen and good lubricity characteristics; 2. Lower tenacity than continuous filament constructions; and, 3. Produce lower cost thread constructions. (See Fiber Science.)
An official site for selling wool. The government decreed that wool could only be sold at certain locations in order to control the trade and to facilitate the collection of customs.

Natural fibers, or cut lengths from filaments. The staple lengths of natural fibers vary from less that 1-inch, as with some cotton fibers, to several feet for some hard fibers. Manufactured staple fibers are cut to definite length, from 8 inches down to 1-½ inches. The term staple (fiber) is used in the textile industry to distinguish natural, or cut length manufactured fibers form filament.
