What is combed cotton? As the name suggests, combed cotton itself is also a type of cotton. Combed cotton refers to a textile process that is more delicate than pure cotton. Combed cotton uses a combing machine to remove shorter fibers (about 1CM or less) ), While leaving longer and neat fibers.
The production method of cotton yarn is relatively complicated. Generally speaking, there are currently two methods of spinning, namely carded spinning and combed spinning:
(1) Carding spinning process: cotton blending → opening and clearing → carding → drawing → roving → spinning → post-processing → finished product inspection.
(2) Combing spinning process: cotton blending → open and clear cotton → carding → combing → drawing → roving → spun yarn → post-processing → finished product inspection.
① Hygroscopicity: cotton fiber has good hygroscopicity. Under normal circumstances, the fiber can absorb moisture into the surrounding atmosphere, and its moisture content is 8-10%, so it touches human skin and makes people feel soft and Not stiff.
② Moisturizing: Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity is extremely low, and because cotton fiber itself has porosity and high elasticity, a large amount of air can accumulate between the fibers, and air is a poor conductor of heat and electricity. Therefore, cotton fiber textiles have good moisture retention, and wearing cotton socks makes people feel warm.
③Healthiness: Cotton fiber is natural fiber, its main component is cellulose. The cotton fabric has been tested and practiced in many ways. The fabric has no irritation and negative effects on skin contact. It will be beneficial to the human body if worn for a long time and has good hygienic performance.
And the quality of the yarn spun from combed cotton is better. The fabric made of combed cotton yarn has a high quality level in texture, washability and durability. More importantly, the socks caused by combed cotton are smoother and more Tough and not easy to fluff, the quality of socks is more stable.
