What is "Spinning" - Definition & Explanation

Process where oriented fibers are twisted into a yarn to keep them together and improve strength. Compare with filament tow.
The process used in the production of yarns or filaments.
Spinning is the process of creating yarn (or thread, rope, cable) from various raw fiber materials.
This final operation in the production of a natural yarn, consists of of the drawing, twisting, and the winding of the newly spun yarn onto a device such as a bobbin, spindle, cop, tube, cheese, etc. In manufactured fibers, the spinning process is the extrusion of a spinning solution into a coagulation bath, a heated air chamber, or a cooling area in order to form a continuous filament or tow.
This final operation in yarn manufacture consists of the drawing, twisting, and the winding or the newly spun yarn onto a device such as a bobbin, spindle, cop. tube. cheese, etc. Spinning requires great care by all operatives involved. Mule and ring spinning are the two major methods today, and in addition to being spun on these methods, worsted yard is also spun on the cap and flyer flame methods ot producing finished spun yarn.
This refers to the process of making yarn.
Spinning is a form of exercise that involves using a stationary bicycle in a classroom setting. The spin-class concept was created in the 1980s by Jonathan Goldberg ("Johnny G"). It involves a combination of physical and mental ability, requiring you to use your imagination in each class as the scenery never changes. Participants set goals based around their heart rate, which can be measured by hand or using a heart rate monitor.
Spinning is the process of creating yarn (or thread, rope, cable) from various raw fiber materials.Several fibers are twisted together to bind them into a strong, long yarn. Characteristics of the yarn vary based on the material used, fiber length and alignment, quantity of fiber used and degree of twist. The earliest spinning probably involved simply twisting the fibres in the hand. Later the use of a stick to help twist the fiber was introduced.
The process of making YARN from cotton FIBERS by drawing out and twisting the FIBERS into a thin strand.
