This article is within the scope of WikiProject Textile Arts, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of textile arts on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
The article should also mention units like hanks and skeins; and the various methods thread might be made form single filaments, or staples spun into yard and then plied into thread (Cotton count is very descriptive as to number of plies). Dropping this here as a note to myself and anyone else interested in expanding the article. It's presently not very useful. Nuttish (talk) 13:50, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
