For the first time, we demonstrate flexible transistors formed directly on fibers. This represents a significant step towards the realization of electronics textiles. Fiber transistors exhibit mobilities of>10-2 cm 2 /V-s measured at 20V VDD. The entire transistor is fabricated without resorting to conventional lithography techniques. Patterning is achieved via shadowing from overwoven fibers. The process is compatible with textile manufacturing, and is therefore a promising technology for scalable e-textile fabrication
