Thank you very much for your response, but just one thing that I cannot open the first PDF file.

Sorry about not being able to open the pdf. Having a hard time sending the report to you so what I would suggest is to go on Google and type in "The Use of Recycled Fibers in Fashion and Home Products". This study I believe can offer a wealth of information that you are looking for,

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/305939924_The_Use_of_Recycled_Fibers_in_Fashion_and_Home_Products

I hope that this information was found useful as please inform me of any additional questions/concerns you have. Also if you could take a second to rate my assistance so that I know my help was found useful today.

Take care,

Michael
