The operatin of forming the rove, or slightly twisted sliver or roll of wool or cotton, by means of a machine for the purpose, called a roving frame, or roving machine.
A roll or sliver of wool or cotton drawn out and slightly twisted; a rove. See 2d Rove, 2.
A number of strands, tows, or ends collected into a parallel bundle with little or no twist. In spun yarn production, an intermediate state between sliver and yarn.
A Name Given, Individually Or Collectively, To The Relatively Fine Fibrous Strands Used In The Later Or Final Processes Of Preparation For Spinning.
A collection of untwisted strands wound together into a doff (ball). Also another name for the fabrication process step.
A slightly twisted sliver or roll of alpaca fiber, also called the rove, produced during processing before the fiber is further drawn and spun into yarn.
The loosely twisted strand of cotton FIBERS from the time it leaves the SLUBBER until it goes through the SPINNER FRAMES and becomes YARN.
Unspun wool or other fiber used for doll hair. May be wool, Merino, Cotswold, mohair, flax, polypropylene, etc.
A collection of bundles of continuous filaments in untwisted strands. Used in the spray-up (chopping) process.
The thick, rope-like mass of cotton fibers sent from the card room to the spinning room, where it was "laid up" above the spinning machinery in large coils--hence "roving haulers" or "laying up roving."
a process that reduces sliver produced by carding and drawing to a suitable size for spinning.
A collection of bundles of continuous filaments either as untwisted strands or twisted yarns. Rovings may be lightly twisted, but for filament winding they are generally wound as bands or tapes with as little twist as possible.
A loose rope of parallel fibres, slightly twisted to hold them together before spinning. Weavers at Musqueam often rove by rolling the rope of loose wool along their thighs; sometimes this is called thigh spining. However, wool still requires spinning on a wheel.
The rope-like end product of a series of drawing-out operations in spinning. The "slivers" are given a little twist and pulled out into a small strand on a roving frame or sliver.
Continuous strands of glass fibers grouped together to form an untwisted yarn or rope. Rovings are commonly used for chopper gun spray-up laminates and to form woven rovings.
A loose assemblage of fibers drawn or rubbed into a single strand, usually thicker than a sliver.
refers to a certain number of approximately parallel glass strands combined to form a larger strand (or glass roving); an individual glass strand consists of a certain number of individual glass filaments that have been combined without twisting to form a thread of uniform size, and these filaments are arranged in a mostly parallel relationship
A specified number of single strands wound up in parallel to give a spool of glass fibers.
A collection of bundles of continuous glass fiber filaments, either as untwisted strands or as twisted yarn.
The rope of parallel but lightly-twisted fibres from which cotton is spun.
A collection of parallel strands (assembled roving) or parallel continuous filaments (direct roving) assembled without intentional twist (according to ISO/DIS 13922).
long tubes of carded wool, produced by carding machines
A slightly twisted sliver or roll of wool produced during processing before it is spun into yarn.
The term "roving" is used to designate a collection of bundles of continuous filaments either as untwisted strands or as twisted yarns. Glass rovings are predominantly used in filament winding.
endless glass fibre bundles; a collection of parallel strands (assembled roving) or parallel filaments (direct roving) assembled without intentional twist
In spun yarn production, roving is an intermediate state between sliver and yarn. Roving is a condensed sliver, which has been drafted, twisted and wound on a roving bobbin, which is the supply package for spinning.
a long, continuous arrangement of unspun fiber, immediately prior to the stage of worsted spinning
A number of yarns, strands, tows, or ends collected into a parallel bundle with little or no twist. This term is applied most commonly to glass and Kevlar. Roving
Fleece that has been cleaned and carded, then drawn out in twisted roll of fiber. Roving can then be spun into yarn. Roving can also be used for felting or for making latch-hooked items like rugs. May also be called "rove."
a collection of relatively fine fibrous strands used in the later or final processes of preparation for spinning.
