Aerated Yarn

Special type of viscose yam, also known as hollow filament, tubular, or macaroni yarn, produced in such a way as to contain gas, whereas in ordinary yarn, great care is taken to eliminate gas bubbles from the solution before spinning. This special yam is said to be lighter, warmer to the touch, and to have greater covering power than ordinary yam.
