PREPARING THE SOIL, GROWING THE COTTON, HARVESTING THE COTTON, WHAT COMES NEXT IN THE COTTON FABRIC STORY

GINNING IS THE NEXT STEP IN THE TEXTILE PROCESS, AFTER THE COTTON HAS BEEN PICKED.

WHAT IS GINNING IN REGARDS TO COTTON?

The cotton picked up from the plants has seeds in it. Ginning is the process of removing the seeds and debris from cotton. Ginning was traditionally done by hand. Now-a-days, machines are used in ginning.
The term comes from the cotton gin, invented by Eli Whitney in 1794.
In modern ginning, the cotton is first dried to remove moisture. Next it is cleaned to remove any burs, stems, leaves, or other foreign matter. .The ginning process is the most important mechanical treatment that cotton undergoes before it is converted into yarns and fabrics.
The cotton gin is still used today. It has gone through many changes and updates, but the core idea of the machine is still present.
