Definitions for "Combed Cotton"
Combed cotton is considered superior to basic carded cottons in that the short fibers are removed before spinning so as to leave a smoother thread. This results in a finer, more even fabric of high quality.
A cotton yarn that goes through an additional "combing," process so that only the longer fibers remain. This improves the softness and strength of the yarn.
Combing separates long, choice fibres from short ones. The comb straightens and arranges the fibres in a parallel form to create a finer, cleaner, more lustrous, stronger fabric.
