Most natural fibres, such as cotton and wool, are staple fibres and this is what gives polo shirt fabric its texture. Synthetic fibres, such as nylon and polyester are filament fibres, which is why these fabrics tend to be smoother.

Filament fibres refer to fibres of long continuous lengths, while Staples refer to those of shorter length, about a few inches long.
