Twisting

Single yarn is formed by twisting fibers or filaments in one direction. Ply yarn is made by twisting two or more single yarns together, usually by combining singles twisted in one direction with a ply twist in the opposite direction. The number of turns per unit of length in a yarn affects the appearance and durability of fabric made from that yarn. Yarns used for soft-surfaced fabrics have less twist than those used for smooth-surfaced fabrics.

 


We have DREF (friction) spinning for engineering composite staple fiber yarns by themselves or in combination with wires, elastomers, fiberglass and/or multifilament yarn to produce multi-layered composite yarns based on staple fibers. We are capable of twisting many different deniers of yarns ranging from ~350 to ~2000 denier.
