FLAKE YARN


This novelty yarn is a variation on a slub yarn, in which the flake or slub is created by inserting soft, puffy clumps of roving at intervals held in place by an accompanying binder yarn. As a result, the ending yarn has variations in thickness and softness throughout the length of the finished yarn. Applications for a flake yarn are mainly in end-use fabrics where a fancy effect texture to the fabric is desired.
