Yarn twisting. Yarn is a general term for a long continuous bundle of fibres. Here, fibres are being spun together to produce yarn. Yarn is then used to construct a fabric, in this case a carpet, as opposed to thread, which is used to join pieces of fabric together. This is the Brest Carpets company in Brest, Belarus. It is the major producer of carpets in Belarus. Photographed on 27 September 2005.
