Yarn Spinning - Learn more about our process | Gildan

Gildan

Proudly spun in the USA

The majority of our cotton is purchased in the USA It is then shipped in large bales to one of our yarn-spinning facilities. We lay bales down together and draw a thin layer of cotton from the top of each, extracting cotton fibres that are then blended in large air ducts and then aligned.  The fibres come together to form a carpet of cotton that is pulled into a large strand of cotton. The strand is then twisted into a tight sliver and is ready to become yarn.
