Changing a bedsheet can give your room a whole new look. It can instantly uplift the vibe of your room and add style to it. Moreover, the right bedsheet can give you restful sleep every night. For a super soft bedsheet, you need one with a higher thread count, which indicates the number of threads woven into the bedsheet. But to get a good bedsheet, you need to check whether the fabric of the bedsheet is breathable and whether the dyes used in the bedsheet are safe for your skin. These are some important things that Miakasa besheets are made for our valued customers.
- Blending : Bales are laid out side by side in a blending area. The bales are opened by a Uniflock machine that removes a portion of cotton from the top of each bale. Next, the machine beats the cotton together, removing impurities and initiating the blending process. The fibres are then blown through tubes to a mixing unit where the blending continues.
- Carding : Once blended, the fibers move through tubes to a carding machine, which aligns and orients the fibers in the same direction. Cylinders with millions of teeth pull and straighten the fibers and continue to remove impurities.
- Drawing, Testing, and Roving : Here, the cotton fibres are further blended together and straightened as many strands of fibres are drawn together into one strand by a roving frame. The frame twists the fibres slightly and winds a cotton roving onto bobbins.
- Spinning : The rovings are spun on a ring spinner, drawing the cotton into a single small strand and twisting it as it spins. The yarn is then wound onto bobbins and the bobbins are placed onto winders that wind the thread onto section beams that will eventually fit onto a loom for weaving.
- Warping a section beam : It takes between 2,000-5,000 warp (lengthwise yarns) to make up a single width of sheet. Thus, the warping beam, which holds all of the yarns, is very large and cannot be loaded at once. So 500-600 ends of yarn from spools are pulled onto a single section beam, thus warping it. Later, several section beams will be loaded onto the large warping beam, each contributing a portion of the warp.
- Slashing : Each section beam goes through a slasher—a machine that coats the yarn with starch or sizing to protect the ends and makes the yarn easier to weave.
- Warping the beam : Once coated with sizing, several section beams are loaded onto a single large loom beam. As many as 6,000 yarns are automatically tied onto old yarns by a machine called a knotter in just a few minutes. The knots are pulled through the machine and the weaving can begin.
