The range of colors in which textiles are offered in the marketplace is vast and constantly changing due to styles and seasons.

5.2 A complete characterization of the fabrics, including their construction, and other materials used in the assemblage of a textile (for example, sewing thread) is a critical component of a comprehensive forensic fabric or cordage examination.
