What is Spinning?


1. In the process of making Fibre to Fabric, the Fibres are first converted into yarn by the process of spinning.

2. In the process of spinning, fibres from a mass of cotton (or wool, silk, etc.) are drawn out and twisted. This brings the tiny fibres together to form a long and twisted thread called 'yarn'.

3. A Charkha or "spinning wheel" is a device for spinning thread or yarn from fibres. It was both a tool and a symbol during the Indian independence movement. It is a small, portable, hand-cranked wheel, is ideal for spinning cotton and other fine, short-staple fibres, though it can be used to spin other fibres as well.
