*What is "Open End" & "Ring Spun"?

OE or "Open End" spun cotton:  shorter cotton fibers spun to produce a nice yarn but usually is not as soft or strong as Ring-Spun cotton.  Items woven with OE cotton will sometimes "track," which appears after the woven item has been washed and dried.  Tracking looks as if a pattern has been woven when only tabby or plain weave was treadled....very pretty and interesting results!
 

RS or "Ring Spun" cotton: longer cotton fibers spun to produce a softer & stronger yarn than OE spun cotton.  It has a slight "sheen."  It does not track when woven in tabby weave as much as OE cotton.  It is softer to the touch and has more drape than OE cotton.
