Estimated reading time: < 1 min

The trade name ‘woollen-spun’ is applied to staple yarn produced by carding, condensing, and spinning on machinery originally designed for the processing of wool into yarn: It is descriptive of the processing technique and not fibre content. Since the yarn may not contain any wool fibre, the alternative condenser spun is preferable.
