In order to meet our customer’s needs, we produce ELS Cotton yarns also in the special process of Core Technology. Core spinning is a process during which fibres are twisted around an existing yarn, usually a filament. This inner yarn is the core, which is covered around its whole length from spinnable fibres, in this case ELS Cotton.
