It removes more short fibres from card sliver, leaving the longer staple fibres even more parallel to each other. Longer staple length allows greater drawing out of the combed fibres and thus the production of finer yarn. Spinning of carded wool gives the coarse, low-twist yarns for woollen articles, whereas drawing and spinning of combed wool produces the much finer and stronger high-twist yarns for worsted materials. After carding, the sliver passes to the drawing or drafting process. Several bands of sliver are combined and gradually drawn out by passing them between pairs of friction rollers of increasing speed.

Fabrics containing wool and cotton, however, may contain substantial amounts of natural impurities that impede uniform wetting. These include hydrophobic waxes that are difficult to emulsify. The preparation of wool or cotton fabrics can involve much of a textile finishing mill’s resources. Some of the processes that are used in the preparation of materials made from natural fibres are discussed below. Raw wool fibres may contain 30–50% of impurities including wool wax (often called grease), and inorganic salts (suint), as well as varying amounts of dirt, straw, excrement, and burrs.

The shrinkage observed after wetting can be significant. They often have a pronounced tendency to curl at the edges. A yarn breakage can cause the disappearance of a whole series of loops and the formation of a ‘run’. Their handling during wet processing therefore requires more care than for a woven fabric. In warp knitting, a series of parallel yarns is fed into the machine from a beam, similar to a warp beam in weaving. Each yarn passes through its own needle. Warp knits have vertical columns of loops, but each yarn loops into columns to the left and right in a zigzag pattern.
