We study the properties of 2D fibre clusters and networks formed by deposition processes. We first examine the growth and scaling properties of single clusters. We then consider a network of such clusters, whose spatial distribution obeys some effective pair distribution function. In particular, we derive an expression for the two-point density autocorrelation function of the network, which includes the internal structure of a cluster and the effective cluster-cluster pair distribution function. This formula can be applied to obtain information about nontrivial correlations in fibre networks.
