Abstract: Murata twin-spun (MTS) yarns have been compared with equivalent Murata jet-spun (MJS) yarns at different ply twist levels both in S and Z directions. It is observed that the doubling increases the tenacity, breaking extension and flexural rigidity of both the yarns. MTS yarns are stronger and less rigid than the equivalent MJS yarns. The percentage increase in tenacity, breaking extension, and flexural rigidity is more in MTS doubled yarns. The subjective assessment of fabric handle shows that MTS yarn fabrics are softer than MJS yarn fabrics before and after finishing treatment. Finished fabrics are softer than grey and bleached fabrics for both types of yarns.
