Fiber Picking

  • Fiber picking is the next process following washing where the fiber is "Picked" or "Opened". This is needed to break up dense clumps of fiber and to tease out any entanglement prior to fiber carding.
  • Fiber blending can also be accomplished at this stage to achieve an homogenous product and to mix different fibers in the desired proportions.
  • Water soluble Anti-static oils and Spinning oils are added in this process to lubricate the fibers, increase adhesion properties and adjust the moisture content of the fiber.
  • This process is called conditioning.  The careful application of the specific fiber types and the proportions of conditioners is crucial to the subsequent processes and the final product.

One of the first steps in processing is Fiber picking
