Mikechh, you are correct, processing and spinning the yarn will effect fabric softness, as will other factors.

When you touch LHT you're rubbing against the twist of the yarn, so it feels more open and softer.

I can answer the first part of your question. When a product gets moved from a regular production line to what's really a sample sewing line, prices regularly double, or more than double. It's just one of those things that's a result of loss of efficiency. Thanks...
Clever, charming guy is Kiya. Greatly enjoyed the interview. Many thanks.

Who's got some experience here? Use the salt & vinegar to clean your tub

I'm sure you could use crocking as a term to describe what makes whiskers and fades in general. As for the resin treatment: Jeans that has a deep indigo dye and is NOT treated with resin makes your hands blue if you rub them. Resin does NOT, however, prevent your jeans from fading the usual way (whiskers and all...
