Rayon is a synthetic filament fiber. Rayon is created by taking wood pulp and turning it into liquid form. Then that liquid solution is pushed through holes in a device called a spinneret. As the liquid comes into contact with the air it solidifies into rayon, a fiber. Three common hole shapes in the spinarette determine the quality of the yarn: semi-dull, dull, or bright.
As well as viscose rayon, there are other types such as anitrocellulose rayon, developed in 1891.
