Carding; carded is described as a preliminary process in manufacturing spun yarn, after wool is scoured and dried. Wool is fed into a carding machine that opens it into an even layer, removing as much burr and seed as possible and a certain amount of short or broken fibers, then draws the fibers parallel to each other to form a continuous strand of fibers called a sliver.

A yarn preparation process where raw cotton is separated, opened, cleaned, and made into sliver.
