After this process this sliver is converted into final form of yarn. There is another process which is used to make the yarn finer by applying the combing process. the cotton which passed through this combing process is more cleaned and all the damage, entangled and floating fibers are removed from it. in comping process around 15% to 20% more cleaning of cotton is conducted. The combed yarn is much better in quality as compared with carded yarns.
Combed yarn is used to make more reliable and fine quality fabrics both in knitting and weaving.
