VORTEX produces a variety of yarn

VORTEX spinning is able to create various types of yarn, optimizing the properties of each material in the yarn structure.
Below are examples of VORTEX yarns spun from different materials. Every type of yarn made from any material shows features of VORTEX yarn: less hairiness and resistance to pilling.

Difference in twist structure by yarn type

In case of Z twist yarn

graph

graph While the center of any VORTEX yarn has zero twist, in the case of 100% cotton, twisting begins very near the yarn center and the outer side is fully twisted.
However, in the case of synthetic fiber, you will see that the zero twist center area is significantly larger.
Thus, VORTEX spinning produces various types of yarn depending on the fiber used.
