Abstract: The influence of composition and level of spin finish and of opening roller speed on the characteristics of OE friction-spun yarns spun from acrylic fibres has been studied. It is observed that a change in composition or level of spin finish significantly affects the yarn twist, tenacity, mass irregularity, abrasion resistance and flexural rigidity. An increase in opening roller speed significantly increases the breaking extension but does not cause any systematic variation in other yam characteristics except the mass irregularity and flexural rigidity, which show an initial decrease followed by an increase with the increase in opening roller speed.
