Two Types of Cotton Spinning | Texhour

The ring spinning which can produce all counts of yarn. The rotor spinning is a technology for creating yarn without using a spindle. It can spin 3-5 times faster than ring spun, but the resultant fabric has a rougher, sandier hand.

Two Types of Cotton Spinning:

They are,

1. Ring Spinning

2. Rotor Spinning

Let we explain in short form of ring spinning and rotor spinning.

 

Ring spinning:

The ring spinning which can produce all counts of yarn.

A subset of ring spinning is compact spinning, which gives yarn with lesser hairiness, and the resulting fabric has a smooth surface.

Open-end (O-E) or Rotor spinning :

This is a technology for creating yarn without using a spindle.

It can spin 3-5 times faster than ring spun, but the resultant fabric has a rougher, sandier hand.

It is used to spin coarse yarns.
