Hello. I wonder if there are anyone doing a Textile Merit Badge Counseling.
The Textile Merit Badge requirement 2a, and 2b states as follows (posted at the end of this question.) I am trying to figure out what it means by “origin” and “the general content of each fiber” in requirement 2b.
Could someone chime in to help me understand the definition of the question please? Thank you very much.

"2. Do the following:
a. Get swatches of two natural-fiber fabrics (100 percent
cotton, linen, wool, or silk; no blends). Get swatches
of two synthetic-fiber fabrics (nylon, polyester, acrylic,
olefin, or spandex). Get a sample of one cellulosic fabric
(rayon, acetate, or lyocell).
b. Give the origin, major characteristics, and general content of each type of fiber obtained for 2(a). Explain the
difference between a cellulosic manufactured fiber and a
synthetic manufactured fiber.
