Description

Excerpt from Practical and Efficient Spinning: Reprint of Articles Which Appeared on the Discussion Pages of the Southern Textile Bulletin During February, 1913, and Which Were Submitted in Competition for the Best Practical Article on Practical and Efficient Spinning Draft is a very important item, as excessive draft will cause uneven yarn and bad running spinning. The draft should not exceed 12, and 10 to 11 is much better for double roving. I find from various tests that standard twist is best, as too much twist tends to weaken the yarn and destroy the elasticity. We should not run an excessive speed and produce waste and not yarn, as this makes trouble for everybody concerned and causes discontented help. Every end that is put up makes a thick place in the yarn. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
