Term Definition
Carded Cotton

Is a mixture of ragged fibres that are shorter and thicker than combed cotton, cheaper heavier weight T-Shirts are often made from this type of cotton, which gives a looser knit and is courser to touch than ring spun.

Combed Cotton

Combing the cotton uses brushes to comb the cotton fibres so they all lie in the same direction and short weak fibres are taken away.  The result is a stronger, softer fabric.
