Note: in some cases, identification of fiber content is not achievable by a single image alone. It may be necessary to look at the accumulation of evidence provided by a series of images , each employing different microscopic techniques. The following set of images also shows the use of microsolubility as a confirmatory test. Wool fiber from this fabric can be seen at http://cameo.mfa.org/wiki/1940-1949,_gray_double_breasted_suit,_wool_fiber_from_wool_and_acetate_blend_fabric
