This invention relates to spinning, more par
ticularly to the spinning of cotton yarn or a strand
formed of staple ?ber analogous thereto.
In the working of cotton ?bers after a sliver
has been formed in order to reduce this sliver
from a soft thick ?eecy form to a hard twisted
thread the sliver is subjected to a succession
