Different spinning methods | Characteristics

What is Ring spinning?

A process of spinning in which the yarn is twisted and drawn while passing through a small metal device travelling rapidly around a ring in the operation of winding the yarn onto a bobbin.


What is the Rotor spinning?

Rotor spinning (a type of open-end spinning), in which fibres are detached from the card sliver and twisted, within a rotor, as they are joined to the end of the yarn.

What is Air-jet spinning?

Air-jet spinning is a pneumatic method which consists of passing a drafted strand of fibres through one or two fluid nozzles located between the front roller of a drafting system and a take up a device. This process employs an air-jet to rotate the fibre strands and twist them into a yarn.

What is Friction spinning?

Friction spinning is an 'open-end' or a 'core-type' form of spinning (or both), in which the yarn formation takes place with the aid of frictional forces in the spinning zone. Friction- spun yarns are characterized by a distinct wrapper surface.

Fabric Production Techniques

There are different types of fabric production techniques such as weaving, knitting, braiding, non-weaving (for example, felting) and so on....
