From Raw Cotton to Cotton Fabrics

The fabric usually used in the clothes we wear is produced through two processes, the “spinning process” where raw cotton is turned into thread, and the “weaving process” where the thread is woven into fabric. Here we will explain each process in detail using some illustrations.

The Spinning Process

The Weaving Process

In weaving, the warp thread and weft yarn are crossed over one another in a set method in order to weave the required type of fabric. A machine designed to accomplish this task is called a loom. First, the warp thread and weft yarn are prepared so that they can be set into the loom.
