Textile production wastes are undesirable but inevitable by-products in any manufacturing process (spinning, weaving or knitting) and are frequently undervalued. However, if one can convert such wastes into useful product economically, there will be great contribution to the market. In the present investigation, therefore, torn-out garments were firstly cut, then opened and carded. The carded slivers were afterwards fed into the Dref 2 Machine, and yarns were spun at different card cylinder and perforated spinning drum speeds. Testing on the yarns and fabrics were then carried out to evaluate their performance.
