A Product Of Substantial Length And Relatively Small Cross-section Consisting Of Fibres And/or Filament(s) With Or Without Twist. Note 1: Assemblies Of Fibres Or Filaments Are Usually Given Other Names During The Stages That Lead To The Production Of Yarn, E.g., Tow, Slubbing, Sliver, Or Roving. Except In The Case Of Continuous-filaments Or Tape Yarns, Any Tensile Strength Possessed By The Assemblies At These Stages Is Generally The Minimum That Can Hold Them Together During Processing. Note 2: Staple, Continuous Filament, And Mono-filament Yarns Are Included. Note 3: No Distinction Is Made Between Single, Folded And Cabled Yarns. Note 4: Zero-twist Continuous Filament Yarns Are Included. Note 5: Zero-twist And Self-twist Staple Yarn Are Included. Note 6: By The Definition Of Fibre And Filament, Paper, Metal, Film And Glass Yarns Are Included.
Yarn is the general name for any fibre, either natural or manmade, which has been twisted into long strands to form a thread which is then used in a variety of ways: e.g. Knitting, weaving, sewing or embroidery. The individual strand is known as the "ply".
Yarn is a long continuous length of interlocked fibers, suitable for use in the production of textiles, sewing, crocheting, knitting, weaving and ropemaking. Yarn can be made from any number of synthetic or natural fibers. ;
