Abstract: The effect of core yarn properties, such as core yarns material type, yarn count, structure, twist and twist direction. On pile loss tendency of chenille yarns in plain knitted fabrics has been studied. It is observed that the chenilles produced with coarser cotton yarns result in lower amount of pile loss after abrasion than that produced with fine count components. Viscose fibres are not suitable materials for chenille yarns when their effect on pile loss tendency is considered. The use of core yarns having the same twist direction as the chenille yarn increases the abrasion resistance of fabrics, while it causes spirality problem. It is also found that the use of higher twist in core yarns is not a remedy for the pile loss problem in chenille yarns.
