Wildness

Estimated reading time: < 1 min

A ruffled appearance of the surface fibres in slivers, slubbings, rovings, and yams.

Note: Wildness may be due to the processing of these products under dry atmospheric conditions which causes increased inter-fibre friction and static-electricity troubles. The static charges cause mutual fibre repulsion and prevent fibres from taking up normal orderly positions in the respective products.
