An Ecological Wake
What goes into making jeans?
The fiber of the cotton is then spun into yarn or thread to make soft textiles used for fabric for jeans.
Carding and Spinning
The steps is to prepare the cotton yarn, than dyeing the yarn followed by weaving the yarn. The cotton is put into a machine with bent wire brushes, that cleans, disentangle, straighten, and gather the cotton threads, turning it into sliver. They are then put into a spinning machines that twist and stretches the cotton, forming yarn. Most jeans are then pre-shrunk.
