Cockled Yarn

Cockled Yarn — This fabric is constructed of a 100% cotton warp and 100% polyester filling. What appear to be tiny slubs is the result of polyester fibers that are too long for the roll settings on the spinning frame. This results in the fibers being caught by succeeding draft rolls before being turned loose by preceding ones; the fibers are stretched and then released to snap and curl (cockle).
