Here is a video of one of the 200 organizations that belong to AAPN. This particular member, Parkdale Mills, specializes in producing cotton yarn.
Every year we take a bus full of 24 staff people from brands and retailers on a tour of fiber, yarn, fabric and thread production in the Carolinas. One stop is a Parkdale Mill, one of over two dozen that they own. This typical mill turns 12 truck loads of bales of cotton into yarn every day. This produces enough yarn IN THIS MILL to go to the Moon and back 7 times EVERY DAY!
