What is "Linters" - Definition & Explanation

Whole and broken lint fibres and fuzz fibres that are removed from the ginned cotton seed by a special ginning (q.v.) process.
Linters are the short fibers left on the cotton seed after the longer fibers have been removed. Although the fibers are too short for spinning or cloth making, they are useful in paper pulp. The fibers are cleaned and processed into pulp sheets. The pulp sheets can be rehydrated into wet pulp for paper making.
Very fine cotton fibers taken from the seed after staple cotton has been removed.
