Global yarn stocks rose in the 3rd quarter of 2010 as compared to the previous quarter even though Asia's yarn inventories fell slightly. In comparison to the 3rd quarter of 2009 yarn stocks worldwide increased as a result of much higher stocks in South America and despite lower stocks in Asia and Europe.
