Textile bleaching and dyeing machine operators
control machines that wash, bleach, or dye either yarn or finished
fabrics and other products. Textile knitting and weaving machine
operators put the yarn on machines that weave, knit, loop, or tuft it
into a product. Woven fabrics are used to make apparel and other goods,
while some knitted products (such as hosiery) and tufted products (such as
carpeting) emerge in near-finished form. Different types of machines are
used for these processes, but operators perform similar tasks, repairing
breaks in the yarn and monitoring the yarn supply, while tending many
machines at once. Textile cutting machine operators trim the fabric
into various widths and lengths, depending on its intended use.
