A Closer Look into the Weaving Process

Fabrics are used in every area of our daily lives. Whether it is on upholstery, the clothes we wear, our bedding or car seats, it forms an important part of our everyday lives. Cotton fabric manufacturing starts with the preparation of the yarn for weaving or knitting. As an example of the scope of the textile industry, the mills in the United States produce about eight billion square yards of woven and three billion square yards of knitted cotton goods each year. Weaving remains the oldest method of turning yearn into fabrics. Even though technology has greatly changed the way this is done, the basic principle of interlacing yarns hasn’t changed. Lengthwise yarns form the skeleton of the fabric. These normally need a higher degree of twist than the filling yarns that get interlaced lengthwise. In the past, cloth was woven by a wooden shuttle moving horizontally back and forth across the loom, interlacing the filling yarn with the horizontal, lengthwise warp yarn. This is the basic process that cotton goes through to be turned into the fabrics that we all use and love through our every day.
