- wet spinning for longer fibers
- dry spinning for shorter fibers
- stretch break spinning
Linen type spinning is only recommended for processing linen. Other materials, such as cotton or polyester for example, should be processed by other techniques due to the practisability of linen type spinning. Linen type spinning is designed to process fibers that are not of uniform length due to the linen harvesting process and the different growth rates of the linen plants. Accordingly, a recommended (cut-)length does not exist for linen type spinning.
