There are primarily three commercial methods of spinning yarn.  They are called Ring Spun, Rotor Spun, and Friction Spun.  Each method produces different results in the yarn.  Ringspun cotton has qualities that make it softer and more comfortable to wear. The secret is in the yarn processing.

What is ring-spun yarn?

Ring-spun yarn is a superior cotton yarn that results in a softer, more durable fabric than open-end yarn. The time-honored process of ring spinning requires two more processing steps than open-end yarn production and ring-spun yarn takes five times longer to produce. The additional steps involve continuously twisting and narrowing the rope of cotton fibers. This continuous fiber "helix" or twist gives ring-spun yarn extra softness and strength. The resulting garments feel softer wash after wash.
