calls caper yarn caper yarn from shortfibrous wool, fine animal hair or mixtures gesponnenes yarn. It develops through combs to raw wool, whereby the short pieces of fiber are removed from the starting material and then on special spin machines are continued to process.
Caper yarns are rougher and more uneven than comb yarns and half comb yarns. By a smaller fiber order than with comb yarns many fibers are away, the yarn are more roughly, more softly turned and thus more voluminöser. Caper yarns are inclined therefore rather to the Pillingbildung.
