How Yarns and Fabrics Are Made from Cotton
In the next step, the harvested cotton is brought into the Cotton-Gin*, a textile machine which separates the cotton fibres from the sticky seed pods. This is done with the help of small wire hooks that pull the cotton fibres through a sieve whereby the seeds remain in the sieve.
The cotton fibres are then pressed into bales and taken 325km to Sunflag Ltd. in Arusha where yarns are manufactured and further processed into fabrics. In this video we show you how the cotton fibres are cleaned, spun into yarns and processed into fabrics by large circular knitting machines. Also, Aditya answers the question of how the industrial wastewater from the dyeing process is recycled.
