Yarn Manufacturing Abbreviations

There are lots of processes involved in different types of spinning. It is required to go through different critical processes to convert fiber into yarn and in these processes, different abbreviations are used by the people working there. Whereas yarn manufacturing is continuing fiber to cone winding. If you are working in the yarn manufacturing section then you definitely need to know some important abbreviations used in the yarn manufacturing process, because it will help you to understand these abbreviations and use accordingly.

Considering the importance I have tried my best to accumulate all the abbreviations used in the different stages of yarn manufacturing.
