The Drawframe takes multiple rovings from the Carder and creates a single roving that is consistent in size over its entire length. It also further aligns the fibers to parallel, and makes a stronger roving for ease of processing. As the roving is passed through the drawframe, it increases 2.5 times in length (or 2.8 times if a different head is used).

Fiber is typically passed twice through the drawframe.  The output is monitored so that the roving is divided into equal parts for spinning.

Because the drawframe blends multiple rovings into one fiber stream, blending at this stage can create very unique end products.
