Field Trip: Textile Research Center


Duration: 23 slides

Item Number: CEVD0554W

Price: $99.00

Lesson topics include:

  • Worsted processing
  • Carding
  • Drawing
  • Combing
  • Weaving
  • Knitting
  • Double-knitting
  • and many more!

Tour a modern facility focusing on one of the world's oldest industries. At the International Center for Textile Research and Development, you will see textile testing from fiber to fabric. Start in the testing lab where you will check the strength of cotton fibers. Then, watch worsted processing and mechanical processing (carding, drawing and combing), ring and rotor spinning onto bobbins, warp preparation and fabric formation (weaving, knitting, double-knitting). Learn about the green and brown "naturally colored cotton" produced through genetically engineered plants. A supplement is included.
