Dead fibre

f. procured from dead and animals, which is almost straight or bent, coarse, fragile and dull, and is used as an effect, most commonly in carded yarns. On the textile surface it creates a slight frosting. In cotton, d. f. indicates that the fibre is immature, fragile, weak, and cannot be dyed - as such it is considered defective.
