About beta cloth: After the tragic Apollo 1 launch pad fire that killed 3 astronauts, NASA decided to work on removing all flammable materials from the spacecraft cabin. A new material was designed for use as the outer layer of space suits made of teflon-coated fiberglass. This cloth was called beta cloth and is still widely used for space suits and missions to this day. 

By Apollo 7 even the embroidered patches, insignias, and name tags were replaced with screen printed beta cloth patches.
