Metallic thread twisted over cotton or silk for brocading. Also referred to, in popular parlance, asjad,
(1) a continuous-filament single yarn in which there is no twist, (2) a multi-fold yarn in which there is no folding twist. Note 1: some fibrous yarns are described as twistless, since the fibres may be held together by adhesive temporarily e.g., until incorporated in fabrics. Varieties of core-spun yarn and scaffolding yarn have appeared with this description after solvent-removal of one component. Note 2.. Zero-twist continuous-filament yams usually become twisted by over-end withdrawal e.g., from a pirn in a loom shuttle.
