When reading, here are a few things to keep in mind.
However, it is important to note that the words are often used
interchangeably. The words fabric and cloth are used in textile
assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking) as synonyms for textile.
However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage.
Textile refers to any material made of interlacing fibres. A fabric is a
material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding
that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.). Cloth may
be used synonymously with fabric but is often a finished piece of fabric
used for a specific purpose (e.g., table cloth).

A textile or cloth is a flexible material
consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres (yarn or thread).
Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool, flax, cotton, or other
material to produce long strands. Textiles are formed by weaving,
knitting, crocheting, knotting, or felting. It is always a good time
to learn more about fabrics and the industry that manufacturers them or
turns them into fashion.
