dc.description.abstractPolyester fibres of different linear densities and cross-sectional shapes have been spun on ring frame at different twist levels. These yarn samples are subjected to the deformation both in tensile and bending mode to investigate the yarn behavior as a consequence of change in cross-sectional shape and fineness of polyester fibres. Young’s modulus as well as bending rigidity of yarns increases with the increase in fibre linear density. These properties of yarns made of trilobal and tetrakelion fibres are higher in magnitude than those of their corresponding circular fibres, whereas the behaviour is opposite if scalloped oval fibre is dealt. As far as yarn hairiness is concerned, the higher the polyester fibre denier, the higher will be the hairiness count. Yarns made of scalloped oval fibres exhibit maximum numbers of hairs followed by tetrakelion and the circular fibres yarns respectively. Similarly the yarns of trilobal fibres are more hairy than their counterparts made of circular fibres.en_US
