Existing textbooks covering the subject of yarn manufacture deal either with one of the process stages, e.g. cotton carding or open-end spinning, or they present the subject at only the introductory level. Written by a well-known and respected authority on textile technology, this book presents complete coverage of yarn manufacture and technology. It not only introduces the subject, but it provides the reader with an advanced understanding of the various process stages. It covers the requirements of a first degree course in textile engineering or textile technology, then takes the reader beyond that level to provide an understanding expected of a Masters level student.
