Differences between Woollen and Worsted Yarn Manufacturing Process
There is a large difference between the spinning and manufacturing process of both woollen and worsted yarn. These are the two different systems through which different grades of yarns are produced from the wool taken from different animals like sheep, alpaca, rabbits, goats and llama.
Woolen Yarn Manufacturing Process
Wool fiber and hair fiber are the natural hair growth of certain animals and are composed of protein. Protein consists of complex organic compounds containing amino acids. The Great Britain comes first into the story of wool as producer of raw material. The other chief producing countries are Australia, The USSR, New Zealand, Argentina, South Africa, Uruguay and The United States.
Worsted Yarn Manufacturing Process
A fine smooth yarn spun from combed long staple wool. Worsted yarns are more tightly twisted than the bulkier woolen yarns. The soft, heavy yarn is strong and durable and is often used for sweaters. Worsted yarns are also used for fine dress fabrics and suit materials.
