This paper reports results obtained from spinning various Texas upland cottons, along with some other representative U.S. upland cottons, on both conventional and compact spinning systems. The spinning machines used were the Suessen Fiomax 1000 (for conventional ring spinning) and the Suessen EliTe 1000 (the Fiomax 1000 fitted with the compacting system). The focus is twofold: (1) evaluate the performance of these cottons on modern conventional ring spinning machines, and (2) evaluate the improvements in performance resulting from compact spinning.
