From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sliver (rhymes with diver) is a long bundle of fibre that is generally used to spin yarn. A sliver is created by carding or combing the fibre, which is then drawn into long strips where the fibre is parallel. [1] When sliver is drawn further and given a slight twist, it becomes roving.[2] [3]
