Checking the yarn
Having produced the yarn, it is customary to pass it through a rewinding process to inspect it and remove spinning faults. Also, the individual yarn packages or bobbins will be assembled into larger packages for the next process to remove the need for handling large numbers of smaller yarn quantities and to increase subsequent processing efficiency (some modern spinning techniques avoid this necessity).
Folding and Twisting
One possibility for the yarn, at this stage, is a process known as folding or twisting which twists two or more single yarns together to make plied structures such as sewing threads and industrial yarns.
