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 fibers 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.
