What is "Carding" - Definition & Explanation

The disentanglement, cleaning and intermixing of fibres to produce a continuous web or sliver suitable for subsequent processing. This is achieved by passing the fibres between moving pins, wires or teeth.
A process of cleaning fibers by separating and laying them parallel to each other.
A process which eliminates fibers too short for inclusion in the spun yarn. The process also removes dirt and foreign matter still remaining in the fiber mass, and arranges the fibers into a very thin layer.
Carding is the processing of brushing raw or washed fibers to prepare them as textiles.
A process of opening and cleaning textile fibers-usually cotton – which separates fibers from each other, lays them parallel, forms them into a thin web, and then condenses them into a single continuous untwisted strand or bundle of fibers called a “silver”.
The final cleaning process, accomplished by either hand or machine, through which alpaca fiber goes before spinning.
The step after blending in the staple spinning process which combs out the loose fibers and arranges them in orderly strands called sliver. Sliver is drawn and blended, then twisted and further drawn into yarns.
The conversion of a tangled or matted mass of fibres into a uniform filmy web. Usually achieved by passing the fibres between two closely spaced surfaces covered with sharp points.
