What is Ring-Spun Cotton?
Cotton is obtained from the seedpod of the cotton plant that is made into strands of fiber. A soft vegetable fiber. These strands of cotton fiber are then twisted together to make yarn.
This yarn is then woven together to produce different products of fabrics. This is the type of cotton fabric used in regular apparel products that shows 100% cotton, or 60% cotton and 40% polyester. A more heavier and rougher type of apparel product.
A slightly different process is used to create Ring-spun cotton. The same cotton fiber strands is used as for the regular cotton. The Ring-spun process twists this regular yarn continuously and thins the strands, making it a very fine rope of cotton fibers. The twisting makes the short hairs of cotton stand out, resulting in a stronger yarn with a significantly softer touch. The number of times the fiber gets twisted determines how soft it will be.
In many cases, we will see something described as 30 Singles Ring-Spun. This a term used to indicate the diameter of a yarn. The smaller the number, the thicker the yarn. The higher the number the thinner and softer the yarn, because it has been twisted more times.
Ring-spun vs. Regular Cotton:
A garment made of Ring-Spun cotton will be lighter in weight compare to a garment made of regular cotton. A 6.1-oz 100% (regular) cotton t-shirt may be heavier than a 4.3-oz 100% Ring-spun cotton t-shirt, but the lighter weight Ring-spun t-shirt may be a lot more durable because of the stronger yard.
