Abstract: Wicking behaviour of air-jet textured yarns has been studied in relation to surface structure, core diameter, spin finish, fibre cross-sectional shape and yarn tension. It has been observed that increasing percentage of floats and arcs and higher percentage increase in core diameter improves the wicking behaviour. Yarns with spin finishes show higher wicking height as well as higher wicking rate as compared to yarns without spin finishes. Trilobal filament yarns show better wicking properties than the yarns produced from circular filaments. The yarn tension has also been found to influence the wicking height.
