Comparing the properties of all of the fibre types with each other, shows that they all have distinct advantages and disadvantages. This makes different fibre types more suitable for some applications than others. The following table provides a basic comparison between the main desirable features of generic fibre types. 'A' indicates a feature where the fibre scores well, and 'C' indicates a feature where the fibre is not so good.
