You'll need matches, tiny cuts from the fabric, and either a tin or go outside. Yes, you're going to light the piece on fire! When the fabric burns, watch how it burns.
- How is it burning?
- How does it smell?
- What color of smoke does it give off?
- What does it look like afterwards?
If the fabric is burning, it is a natural fiber. If it smells like a regular fire and gives off white to gray smoke, it is a natural fiber. This yellow printed fabric burned, and the burned bits were ashy.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
