I have tried to check those translations, not much success. Manufacturers may call their yarns fantasy names, but the client is reminded of the basic production procedures.

Ther seems to be something wrong with "DD doubled yarns". DD refers to the spinning - double drive. I would just say "DD yarn".

Good luck
