What is "Plied Yarn" - Definition & Explanation

Plied yarn is yarn that has been plied, with the process called plying.
A twisting together of two or more single yarns in one operation.
A yarn composed of two or more single yarns twisted together. Many two-ply yarns are used in carpet. In cut-pile carpet, eg, saxony, plied yarns must be heat-set to prevent untwisting under traffic. Multiple continuous filament yarns made by fiber producers are sometimes air-entangled rather than twisted.
