Worsted Spun requires a very different fibre preparation, and spinning woolen spinning is all about trapping air, worsted does the exact opposite. Instead of carding the fibres they're combed. Hairs are aligned to be parallel, instead of being rolled up to perpendicular to the direction of the yarn. Thus, in the woollen yarn there is an entangled arrangement of fibres. They are not combed straight as in worsted spinning. The woollen yarn possesses more loose fibre than the worsted, is rougher in appearance, and on its surface has numerous projecting fibre ends. In relation to the thinner 1ply yarns Woollen Spun has a crisper feel, whereas the Worsted Spun has more drape and softness. In this photo below you can see the 1ply Supreme (worsted) on the left has more of a halo whereas the 1ply Cobweb (woollen) on the right has better stitch definition – it almost feels like cotton although it is % wool. Worsted-Spun. As with our woolen-spun yarns, fiber prepared for worsted-spun yarn is first scoured and then carded. This carded wool from the initial fiber preparation is prepared further in a worsted-style through g the jumbled fibers aligns them in a parallel fashion and also removes shorter fibers for uniform length.
In side-by-side comparison of worsted and woolen yarns with the same fiber and yarn structure, the worsted yarn is more durable, less warm, and heavier than a woolen yarn. The packing-in of the fiber as worsted yarn is made allows the fibers to protect each other for longer wear and less pilling.

Handspinning Woollen and Worsted Yarn. Woollen and worsted yarn are two types of yarn that can be handspun. Both types require different fiber preparation on spinning techniques. Woollen Yarn Woollen yarn is spun using a short staple fiber that is prepared by handcarding and rolled into rolags. A drumcarder can also be used. It is traditional to worsted spin the lustre fibres such as Cotswold and Wensleydale and the resulting yarns are nice and soft and strong, but the fibre makes for a very lean yarn and if the wool is combed but then woollen spun you get the benefit of both the softer result from combing and . Building on the basics presented in the author’s previous book, Ashford Book of Spinning, this handbook provides more advanced spinners with information extending beyond the act of spinning—how to spin an adequate yarn and extend the range of yarns produced, what happens during the spinning process, and the relationship between the raw materials and the final output—for greater /5(32).
