Product Status: Out of stock. Not available to order.
This new, large format, illustrated, slim handbook, is from a series dealing with small-scale textile production from raw materials to finished products. Each handbook sets out to give some of the options. Almost all fabrics, whether woven or knitted, are produced from spun thread. However this thread or yarn, produced by the spinning operation, is rarely in a form suitable to be used immediately for producing a fabric. A broad range of tasks must be undertaken before the actual fabric production operation is reached- this handbook shows the principles & practices used with natural fibres. The Third In The Small-scale Textiles Series, This Book Describes The Post-spinning Processes Prior To Fabric Manufacture, Such As Yarn Doubling, Winding And Warping.

Introduction to yarn preparation; basic principles; testing and quality control; small-scale machinery; production planning; suppliers of equipment; sources of further information. Appendices: calculations; comparison of tex with other count systems.
