fabric weaving Woven fabrics are made by using two or more sets of yarn interlaced at right angles to each other. Much variety is produced by weaving.

Draw frame Functions

spinning spun-yarn yarn Carded Slivers are fed into the Draw-Frame and are stretched/Straightened and made in to a single sliver. Also fibre blending can be done at this stage. The cans that contain the sliver are placed along the draw-frame feeder rack, usually including eight pairs of cylinders (each pair is above the space occupied by a can),the lower cylinder is commanded positively, while the upper one rests on the lower one in order to ensure movement of the relative sliver that runs between the two.

Fancy Twills

fabric weaving The fancy twill is formed by placing small spots between the main lines of twill. The first end of the weave should be a continuation of the last end and the first pick should be a continuation of the last pick, so that the weave will continue perfectly when repeated in either direction.
