Volume III of WORSTED PREPARING AND SPINNING. (DRAWING AND SPINNING). THE subjects dealt with in this volume are worsted drawing, including differential bobbin winding and mechanism, or cone drawing; French drawing; throstle spinning of the flyer, cap, and ring types; twisting; warp winding, and warping. Two comparatively long chapters are devoted to the subject of mechanical doffers for flyer and cap frames, which will be found to be fully considered and extensively illustrated. This book is the product of many years of practical experience, teaching, observation, study, and technical conversations. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
