Summary From ancient to modern time, humans have been trying to use finer fibres to make fibrous products for various purposes and believing that finer fibres have better aesthetic qualities. So far, the commercial fibres have been reduced to microns in diameter, but it seems difficult to further reduce the fibre fineness to submicrons using conventional fibre-making techniques.
Electrospinning is a promising technique to produce continuous fibres with diameters on nanometre scales. This technique involves stretching a polymer fluid under a strong electric field into fine filaments, which are deposited randomly on the electrode collector forming a nonwoven nanofibre mat in most cases. Despite considerable efforts in exploring the applications of electrospun nanofibres in non-fibrous fields [1], very limited work has been conducted on using this material to process mechanically robust nanofibre yarns [2,3].
