PhraseologySilk Thread or Yarn Mfg.
Code 2302 applies to employers engaged in manufacturing silk thread or yarn. Fiber materials are combined by winding or rewinding, twisting, reeling, weaving or looping on looms to form products which may be sold in the form of cones or skeins. Other operations include shoddy manufacturing which pertains to the reduction of rags or mill waste to their original fiber form by sorting, carbonizing, baking, dusting, washing, garneting and baling.
Employers may also process cotton by shredding, picking, dusting or trimming to make wadding or packaging content used for toy stuffing, furniture upholstery, automobile tops or crate padding.
Wool separation where rags are soaked in chemical solutions to reclaim cotton is also included under this classification. Subsequent operations may include drying, washing to remove remaining chemicals, and drying again.
This classification also includes manufacturing carpet or rugs from jute or hemp fiber by braiding or twisting fibers together.
Examples such as synthetic, foam rubber or cellulose type products including sponges, mop heads, nets, powder puffs, sisal pads, tennis racket string, cloth labels, silk ribbons or tape, clothes line rope, pipe insulation covering, and fiberglass fabric manufacturing are also included under this classification.
