Abstract: The properties of plain woven fabrics made of DREF-III yarns having staple fibre core-sheath yarn, twistless core component and hollow sheath component in weft and 2-ply cotton ring-spun yarn in warp have been studied. Three different types of weft yarn, namely 59 tex yarn with staple viscose fibre in both core and sheath , 118 tex yarn with staple viscose fibre in core and water-soluble staple PVA fibre in sheath, and 118 tex yarn with PVA in core and viscose in sheath, were prepared on DREF-III system using 50:50 core-sheath ratio. It is observed that the fabric made from twistless core component in weft shows very good tensile strength, tear strength, crease recovery and abrasion resistance, whereas the fabric with hollow sheath component in weft shows bulky and compressible structure.
