Texturized yarns are made by a process of air texturizing filament yarns (sometimes referred to as taslanizing) which combines multiple filament yarns into a yarn with some of the characteristics of spun yarns.
Yarn is composed of twisted strands of fiber which are known as plies when grouped together.8 These strands of yarn are twisted together (plied) in the opposite direction to make a thicker yarn. Depending on the direction of this final twist the yarn will have either s‑twist (the threads appear to go "up" to the left) or z‑twist (to the right). For a single ply yarn the direction of the final twist is the same as its original twist. The twist direction of yarn can affect the final properties of the fabric and combined use of the two twist directions can nullify skewing in knitted fabric.
Yarn is selected for different textiles based on the characteristics of the yarn fibres such as warmth (wool) light weight (cotton or rayon) durability (nylon is added to sock yarn for example) or softness (cashmere alpaca).
