Cotton is made into fabric when bales of cotton which are mixed and fluffed-up are put into a carding machine which cleans the cotton fibers and makes them lie side by side. This usually makes the cotton fibers soft which is then placed in spinning devices which rotate to up to 2,500 revolutions in a second and twist the fibers into a yarn. Yarns are then placed into loom machines which work at great speeds, interlacing the length-wise yarns called warp and the crosswise yarns called filling to make a woven fabric.
