Nylon

A synthetic polymer (generically known as a polyamide). Nylon was originally made as a synthetic replacement for silk, when silk became scarce during World War II. It replaced silk in parachutes and flak vests during the war. When added to fiber, it gives a bit of extra durability and abrasion resistance.
