What is "Ring spun" - Definition & Explanation

A spinning system in which twist is inserted in a yarn by using a revolving traveller. This method gives a tighter twist than the more modern, faster and usually cheaper open end spinning process.
A yarn spinning method in which roving ( a thin strand of fiber with very little twist) is fed to a 'traveler' with rotates around the edge of a ring. Inside the ring is a faster rotating bobbin. The process simultaneously twists the roving into yarn and winds it around the bobbin. Ring spun yarns are generally stronger than open end yarns.
