Abstract: The influence of tuft constitution on the functional and aesthetic properties of hand-woven carpets has been studied. It is observed that the tuft composed of plied yam provides better handle but diminishes the surface appearance of carpet. The carpet piles having single-ply yarn exhibit better look because the spread of pile all over the carpet is more uniform. To obtain both virtues, i.e. appearance and handle, two-ply yarn instead of single-ply or three-ply yarn may be used. It is also observed that in carpets prepared from plied yarns, more force is needed to withdraw a tuft. Abrasion loss in the carpet samples of all the compositions has been found within the acceptable limit.
