Spinning and Weaving


"Spinning is a major industry. It is part of the textile manufacturing process where three types of fibre are

converted into yarn, then fabrics, which undergo finishing processes such as bleaching to become textiles.

The textiles are then fabricated into clothes or other products."

(Wikipedia - Spinning (textiles))


"Weaving is a method of fabric production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at

right angles to form a fabric or cloth. The other methods are knitting, lace making, felting, and braiding or 

plaiting. The longitudinal threads are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft or filling. (Weft or

woof is an old English word meaning "that which is woven".)
