Fancy Yarns and New Tech Kntting Machines.
The use of Fancy yarns on power driven machines are made only for this type of yarn.
We do have power driven knitting machines but those yarns are all made from Spinning Machines with Electronic Controls to produce any fancy type of yarn as designed and incorporated in the soft ware of this electronic controls.
There are simple mechanical attachments also fitted to Spinning Machines which produce slubs,knots, fixed interval loose ends twisted and doubled with dyed yarn on Doubling Machines.
The Doubling Machines are similar to Spinning machines with out any drafting attachments fixed to draw and make the yarn thin and twist,this process is avoided in Doubler Machines.
The Doubler Machines are of a special kind in the sence they double and double as many times as you want inserting 'S' or 'Z' twists the only 2 types of twists used at alternate doublings to get the required texture.
The yarn to be Doubled on these machines require pre Doubling process,that is they have to be wound on Cone winding machines which double,triple,4flod,5fold,6fold,7flod,8 fold and more if required for special purpose such as yarns for Industrial use.Any amount of writing is useless as these things need hands on experience.No use telling how sweet is sugar with out allowing to taste the Sugar.
Visit a doubler plant installed in any Spinning mill and you will get to know better how the whole things works.
