Textiles are often dyed with fabrics available in almost every colour. The dyeing process often requires several dozen gallons of water for each pound of clothing.19 Coloured designs in textiles can be created by weaving together fibres of different colours (tartan or Uzbek Ikat) adding coloured stitches to finished fabric (embroidery) creating patterns by resist dyeing methods tying off areas of cloth and dyeing the rest (tie-dyeing) or drawing wax designs on cloth and dyeing in between them (batik) or using various printing processes on finished fabric. Woodblock printing still used in India and elsewhere today is the oldest of these dating back to at least 220 CE in China. Textiles are also sometimes bleached making the textile pale or white.
The word cloth derives from the Old English clað meaning a cloth woven or felted material to wrap around one from Proto-Germanic kalithaz (compare O.Frisian klath Middle Dutch cleet Dutch kleed Middle High German kleit and German kleid all meaning "garment").
Other animal textiles which are made from hair or fur are alpaca wool vicuña wool llama wool and camel hair generally used in the production of coats jackets ponchos blankets and other warm coverings. Angora refers to the long thick soft hair of the angora rabbit. Qiviut is the fine inner wool of the muskox.
