Siro and solo spinning

This chapter describes two modifications made to the conventional ring spinning technology, termed Sirospun™ and Solospun™, which were primarily aimed at significantly reducing the production cost of fabrics. Both were invented at CSIRO in Australia, hence the name ‘Siro’ spinning. The properties of Sirospun and Solospun yarns are different from those of conventional ring-spun yarns and this has opened new market opportunities.
