Worsted

Definition: Worsted

Worsted

Longer, combed yarns, tightly twisted, less fuzzy, crisp in appearance.

The name derives from the village of Worstead in the English county of Norfolk. This village became a center for the manufacture of yarn and cloth after weavers from Flanders (once a region overlapping parts of Belgium, France, and the Netherlands) arrived in Norfolk in the 12th century.
