A novel spinning method: embeddable and locatable spinning, is reported for the first time in this paper. Analysis of the key restrictions of the conventional and some novel ring-spinning were studied; evolvement and principles of embeddable and locatable spinning were then introduced. Analysis indicated that embeddable and locatable spinning could overcome the existing restrictions of ring spinning and improve the spinning performance of fiber strands as well as the quality of the resulting yarn. Super-fine and colorful figured yarns could be produced successfully, and most fibers shorter than can be spun in traditional spinning could be well embedded into a yarn by embeddable and locatable spinning method; even staple fibers of low qualities could be used to produce a fine yarn of high qualities in the novel spinning system. This novel spinning method shows huge application potentials in textile industry by improving the yarn quality, developing super-fine yarn, and increasing fiber utilization rate.
