Frequently asked


What is the difference between single and twisted yarn?

Single yarn consists of fibres held together by a small amount of twist; or fine threads held together with or without twist; or narrow strips of material; or synthetic bundled threads of sufficient thickness for use as yarn (single). Single yarn of the spun type, made from many short fibres, also requires twisting.

After yarn is spun it is not strong enough for use in furniture fabrics, curtains, bathroom, bed, table or kitchen linens. In many cases, threads are twisted together to make the yarn stronger. These twisted threads are used as the basis for the fabrics. Twisted yarns result in a stronger end-product, which is more durable than single-yarn woven products.

What is combed cotton/yarn?

Combed yarns undergo an additional process step after carding, which ensures that:
- Short fibres are removed
- The fibres are more equally spaced than with carding alone

These properties lead to a better end-product:
- Softer and more uniform
- Better sheen and more beautiful colours
- More absorbent
- Less pilling
- More durable

What is the difference between reactive and indanthrene dyeing in yarns?
