One of the delicate, threadlike portions of which the tissues of plants and animals are in part constituted; as, the fiber of flax or of muscle.
Any fine, slender thread, or threadlike substance; as, a fiber of spun glass; especially, one of the slender rootlets of a plant.
Tiny thread-like particles. In the case of paper, they come from the tree from which the paper was made.
A natural or synthetic filament, as of cotton, wool or nylon, capable of being spun into yarn; One of the elongated, thick-walled cells that give strength and support to plant tissue.
An elongated and tapering cell of flowering plants, usually with a thick cell wall. Serves a support function.
The fleece of an alpaca
a slender, elongated, threadlike object that provides substance or texture
A lignified cell type that reinforces the xylem of angiosperms and functions in mechanical support; a slender, tapered sclerenchyma cell that usually occurs in bundles. fibril fibra, fiber] Any minute, threadlike structure within a cell.
The slender, thread-like cellulose structures that cohere to form a sheet of paper.
elongated plant cell with thick walls (in xylem and phloem), dead at maturity
One of the elongated, thick-walled cells giving strength and support to plant tissue. An important part of the diet for regulation of digestion and elimination of digestive waste.
plant or animal products used to make clothing, paper, homes, and furniture. Example: cotton, timber, and wool
Elongated, thick-walled cellular unit that is the structural component of woody plants.
A single strand or elongated filament of any connective tissue such as wool, cotton, silk, gold, glass, rayon, etc.
a thread or a structure or object resembling a thread Minnesota: Bison Toolbox
a slender and greatly elongated solid substance
a bit like a thread in that it has its own stack but the context switching is driven by the application rather than the scheduler
a lightweight thread that an application must manually schedule
a thread-like tissue, either natural or manufactured, which is twisted into yarns , and then used in the production of a fabric , the end material which clothes are manufactured from
a user-level "thread"
A natural or synthetic substance, which may be separated into thread-like filaments that can be spun, woven or matted. Heavier polyester fibers are bonded and compressed into pads used as insulators and to add firmness to the comfort of a mattress. Softer synthetic or natural fibers, like batting are used to create surface plushness in the quilt.
Small pieces of thread-like material that are woven together to give structure and strength to paper products. Fiber used in papermaking comes primarily from wood and recovered paper; cotton is also used to make certain products.
The fleece of the alpaca also known as wool or fur.
The cellulose fiber, typically from cotton or wood, that is the main ingredient of paper. Specialty papers may contain synthetic fibers such as rayon or nylon.
A thread or threadlike structure. Also, a single discrete element used to transmit optical (light wave) information.
Thread-like units of vegetable growth obtained from fibrous plants (cotton, jute) or trees (pulp wood).
An elongated plant cell that forms strands. 536
Any slender, elongated mineral structure or particle. For the purposes of counting asbestos fibers in air samples, regulatory agencies commonly count particles that have lengths 5 µm and length:width ratios 3:1 as fibers. For detecting asbestos fibers in bulk building materials, particles with length:width ratios 5:1 are counted as fibers.
A slender elongated natural or synthetic filament capable of being spun into yarn.
The stuff that Lazy Wenches use to make the design on the ground. It is sometimes threaded through a needle, but not always. Fibers for tambour and fibers being couched don't go through a needle. Floss is a fiber, perle is a fiber, ribbon is a fiber. If it is making the ground more interesting and it isn't a bead, sequin or shisha, it's usually falling under the descriptive term 'fiber.' See what I mean
A small, elongated structure with a very small diameter.
a thread or threadlike structure such as cellulose, wool, silk or glass yarn.
Fiber (American English) or fibre (Commonwealth English) is a class of materials that are continuous filaments or are in discrete elongated pieces, similar to pieces of thread. Fibers are often used in the manufacture of other materials. They can be spun into filaments, thread, or rope. They can be used as a component of composite materials. They can also be matted into sheets to make products such as paper or felt. ;
A natural or synthetic substance such as cotton or polyester that can be separated into thread-like filaments and be spun, woven or matted.
Alpaca wool, or fleece, which can be separated into threads; also, the thin, thread-like strands of alpaca fleece that can be spun into yarn.
Elongated and thickened cell found in xylem tissue. It strengthens and supports the surrounding cells.
A slender, threadlike fiber of material.
In skeletal muscle, a single elongated muscle cell, containing hundreds of long, thin myofibrils that run the length of the cell.
In computer science, a fiber is a particularly lightweight thread of execution.
