Frequently Asked Questions | FAQs

What is fibre alignment?

Fiber alignment in carding refers to the process of straightening and aligning fibers in the carding machine to create a uniform web or sliver of fibers.
Carding is the process of cleaning, opening, and blending fibers to prepare them for spinning into yarn or other textile products. During the carding process, fibers are fed into a carding machine that consists of a series of cylinders or drums covered in wire teeth. As the fibers move through the carding machine, the wire teeth comb and separate them, aligning the fibers in the same direction.
The final product of carding is a thin web or sliver of fibers that are uniform in thickness and density. The quality of the yarn or textile product that is produced from this web or sliver depends on the degree of fiber alignment achieved during carding. Proper fiber alignment ensures that the fibers are evenly distributed and oriented in the same direction, which improves the strength, durability, and overall quality of the finished product.
