Worsted is a tightly woven fabric made by using only long-staple combed wool or wool-blend yarns. The fabric has a hard, smooth surface. Gabardine is an example of a worsted fabric. Common end use is men’s tailored suits. Worsted is also a textile process of manufacturing spun yarns from staple fibres usually over 3 inches in length. The main operations are carding, combing, drafting, and spinning.
