Abstract Natural fibers are characterized by large variation in their cross-section, both between fibers and along the length in any single “technical” fiber. This short communication describes an attempt to fully characterize the fiber cross-sectional area using single sample measurements from several fibers. This should enable an improved determination of mechanical properties of natural fibers.
