About Yarn Design Ideas
Yarn is the final product of the spinning process in the form of a natural yarn, including cotton / cotton yarn, or artificial yarn such as nylon yarn, polyester, in accordance with the origin of the fiber. Yarn is generally classified into two categories, namely simple yarns (yarn) and ornamental yarn (novelty yarns).
The base thread is the simplest type. Although this thread may be made of one or the same fiber or mixed fiber, the number of strokes on the same length is the same and this type looks quite soft and flat. Fabrics made from one-size base yarns with the same fiber content, will produce a soft, but less varied, woven surface. While the selected base yarn by different means, or the base yarn having different fiber content, can be combined in the weaving process to produce cloths with various surface effects. With this, various combinations can be made to produce a variety of fabrics.
Ornamental yarns are usually made twisted, although there are several special types obtained from a single yarn. Special thread of this type is made of two single or more threads. The first single thread serves as the base or core and becomes the place to twine the other single threads. The second single thread will create special effects. The third thread, uniting the first two threads. When the basic yarn is made smooth and flat, on the contrary with ornamental threads made irregular, sometimes uneven, in order to produce fabrics with unusual surfaces and textures. Ornamental yarn can produce a variety of interesting fabrics, bonding on a boucle for example, easily torn. While the higher part made of knots look more obsolete than the soft fabric behind the back. There are many variations on ornamental threads, but the most commonly used types are slubbed, looped, and knotted spiral.
