Types of cotton thread
I find that there are many cotton yarns with various names, but nothing more than cotton, pure cotton (that is, blended), full clear and artificial cotton. Cotton thread is a thread made of cotton fibers. There are two types of binding cotton threads, glazed and non-glazed, and the packaging types are straight shaft type and tower shaft type. The tower shaft type is mostly used for thread-locking processing, and its specifications are as follows according to professional standards: 42-count yarn 4 and 6-ply, 60-count yarn 4 and 6-ply white waxed tower wire, the models are S424, S426 , S604, S606, can also be recorded as 42S/4, 42S/6, 60S/4, 60S/6, where S is the yarn count, and the number below the slash indicates that the number of strands of the binding cotton thread is both glazed and non-glazed There are two types of packaging: straight shaft type and tower shaft type. The tower shaft type is mostly used for thread-locking processing, and its specifications are as follows according to professional standards: 42-count yarn 4 and 6-ply, 60-count yarn 4 and 6-ply white waxed tower wire, the models are S424, S426 , S604, S606 can also be written as 42S/4, 42S/6, 60S/4, 60S/6, where S represents the yarn count and the number below the slash represents the number of strands.
At room temperature, add table salt to a glass of clean water and stir constantly with chopsticks until the table salt is no longer dissolved. Soak a cotton thread in the prepared concentrated brine, take it out and let it dry on the table. Lift the dried  with your hand and light a match to burn cotton thread. At this time, you will find that the cotton thread burns from the lower end to the upper end, but the ash after burning is still not burned like a thread. For comparison purposes, let's burn another ordinary cotton thread that has not been soaked in salt water. As a result, the burnt cotton thread does not retain the lower thread ash.
The first is to look at the color. If the color is particularly bright and shiny, it is impossible to be cotton, because cotton cannot shine, and the color of the cotton thread will retreat after repeated washing and sunlight. This cannot be avoided. You can also use it to burn it, and you will know at a glance. Of course, some synthetic fibers cannot be burnt, but some artificial cottons can also burn nothing. It’s really clean. And it burns faster.
2.2 Cotton rope
The shape is the same as the wool, there are thick and thin, thin and thick wool are almost thick, suitable for knitting short sleeves with knitting needles or crochet sweaters in summer, the texture is relatively soft, you can wear and knit sweaters for your baby It is also better woven than ordinary cotton with multiple strands, and there will be no diagonal or missed weaving. Such cotton threads are monochromatic and multi-colored, and the colors are relatively rich. The knitted sweater breathes sweat.
For example, a cotton thread that is too thick feels a little thicker than a thin one, but it can be used by some babies who are afraid of wearing sweaters in winter so that they will not feel uncomfortable when wearing other sweaters. (Many mothers like this) But for this purpose, it is best to knit elastic needles (two up and two down) because the elasticity of cotton thread is not as good as other wool (fleece), and it is also close-fitting. Such lines are also monochromatic and color, which is a good DD.
2.3 Cotton hollow flat belt line
There are also thick or thin point hollow flat ribbon lines.The effect of weaving is similar to that of cotton rope, but it will be thinner than the same thick cotton rope, so it is suitable for summer wear. The woven ribbon is easy to sag, (the common problem of the flat ribbon thread) such flat ribbon threads are also monochrome and colored. Because such hollow flat ribbon threads are hollow, the breathability is also very good
