Polyester fiber is one of the widely used commercial fibers in weaving, knitting, embroidery, sewing and home furnishings, Financial Tribune reported.
There are basically three types of polyester yarns:
- Polyester filament yarns, which enjoy high demand in the global market and are made from PET polyester. These yarns have numerous applications in the modern fiber manufacturing industries.
