Estimated reading time: < 1 min

A system of yarn formation that relies on the use of a permanent or temporary adhesive to bond fibres together.

Note: Where a temporary adhesive is used it is removed during fabric finishing, and the yarn (and fabric) strength is then obtained through lateral pressure produced by the interlacings in the fabric. A similar fabric construction can be achieved by using wrap spun yarns which have been produced with a soluble binder.
