Spinning is the process by which cotton fibre, wool, flax fibre, and other short fibre twisted together to produce yarn or thread suitable for weaving into cloth, winding into rope or cable, or used in sewing.
Long, continuous fibres, such as silk, are not spun. To achieve strength and the proper thickness, thrown or twisted together. See Cotton Ginning,
