Cotton System

This is the most widely used system for fibers with a mean fiber length of 15-50 mm and can process cotton, man-made staple fiber, and their blends. Yarns can be either carded or combed. Combed yarns are produced when the fibers are subjected to the combing operation, which is an option with this system.

what are the differences

Carding partially aligns the fibers and forms them into a thin web that is brought together as a soft, very weak rope of fibers called a carded sliver. Carding is when short wire teeth remove trash and neps (entangled clumps of short, underdeveloped fibers). Combing is used if long-staple fibers are to be spun. It produces a yarn that is superior to a carded yarn in smoothness, fineness, evenness, and strength. Combing aligns fibers in a parallel arrangement & also removes short fibers so fibers in the combed sliver will be more uniform in length.

So does combed spin into heavier weight yarn in the end, Is one better for spindles. I love cashmere wool, is one better for that? Or is it just personal preference ?

Combing and carding are two ways to prepare the raw fiber for spinning. In order to make yarn, the raw fibers need to be fluffed up and aligned prior to spinning.
-Carding creates a slightly fuzzier yarn as not as many of the fibers are aligned.
-Combing creates a smoother yarn as the fibers are more aligned. Combing is the more expensive process as you have higher waste involved than with carding.
