Process of Cotton to Yarn

______________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________

Slub yarn= slub fabric

The different coloration in yarn causes the effect of splotches of contrast when knitted

_________________________________

To yarn dye consistantly: Have to dye from the middle so it color seeps all the way through to the outside

(there is PVC look alike pipe with wholes in them in the middle of the metal stick)

*Cotton Inc. has some machinery that are “Environment”, meaning they try to be “sustainable” & reduce water waste.

Printed denim designs (I noticed a G-star pants had a printed finish on their denim jeans)

__________________________________________________________________

This textile has a water repellent finish

You can move the fabric around all you want and the water won’t stick to fabric, it will just roll around
