Difference Between Fibre and Textile Fibre

Fibre is the constituent unit of a material whose length is a thousand times longer than the diameter or thickness. Fibre may be spinnable or not. 

Textile fibre is that fibre, which can be further converted into yarn and then fabric through various subsequent processes like weaving, knitting, braiding, felting, and so on. So textile fibre is also one type of fibre but all fibres are not textile fibre. Fibres must have some characteristics to be textile fibres.
