Description

The textile manufacturing process consists of the sub-processes of spinning, weaving, dyeing, and chemical processing. Over the years, worsted wool has been a popular choice for men’s trousers, pleated skirts for women, and both men’s suits and sport jackets. Because worsted wool is so durable, it wells very well and also drapes easily. In this book, all processes carried out up to grey fabric stage are explained with visual aids and the quality test procedures are mentioned.
