The First Actual Textile, As Opposed to Skins Sewn Together, was Probably Felt

 Surviving examples ofNålebinding, another early textile method, date from 6500 BC.

Our knowledge of ancient textiles and clothing has expanded in the recent past thanks to modern technological developments. Our knowledge of cultures varies greatly with the climatic conditions to which archeological deposits are exposed; the Middle East and the arid fringes of China have provided many very early samples in good condition, but the early development of textiles in the Indian subcontinent, sub-Saharan Africa and other moist parts of the world remains unclear.
In northern Eurasia peat bogs can also preserve textiles very well.
Early woven embroidery digitizing clothing was often made of full loom widths draped, tied, or pinned in place.
Cotton is grown anywhere with long, hot dry summers with plenty of sunshine and low humidity.
Indian cotton, gossypium arboreum, is finer but the staple is only suitable for hand processing.
American cotton, gossypium hirsutum, produces the longer staple needed for machine production.
Planting is from September to mid November and the crop is harvested between March and June.
The cotton bolls are harvested by stripper harvesters and spindle pickers, that remove the entire boll from the plant.
The cotton boll is the seed pod of the cotton plant, attached to each of the thousands of seeds are fibres about 2.5 cm long.
Historic digitizing textile collections can largely be divided into three categories: museums, historic societies/locations, and private collections.
The needs of each of these locations will vary.
A private collection, for instance, is less likely to have as high a traffic flow as a museum, and may thus be able to take preservation steps that a working museum cannot (such as keeping lights to a minimum for longer periods of time).
The different venues may also have different problems that arise, such as the fact that many historic homes do not have climate control, and rely strongly on natural light to display their furnishings, both of which may contribute to textile decay.
