FABRIC vs. FACTORY: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a nice weekend.

Today's word is: Fabric

Meaning: material made by weaving (tejiendo) wool (lana), cotton (algodón), silk (seda), etc. used for making clothes, curtains and for covering furniture.

Example 1:
John: What kind of fabric is your new sofa made out of?
Jack: It's made out of wool.

Example 2:
He bought two new shirts made from knitted fabric

Notice that fabric is NOT translated into Spanish as fábrica. Fábrica is factory in English.

Example 3:
The multinational company is going to close the factory next year, so hundreds of workers will lose their jobs
