Definition of Blend

The combination of two or more types of staple fibres and/or colours in one yarn. Blends are sometimes so intimate that it is difficult to distinguish the component fibres in either the yarn or the fabric. A highly sophisticated textile art, blending today is creating new fabric types, performance characteristics, and dyeing and finishing effects.
