|Title:||Spirality of weft knitted fabrics: Part IV—Effect of yarn partial detwisting on yam and fabric properties|
|Keywords:||Knitted fabric;Spirality;Steam setting;Yarn detwisting|
|Abstract:||The alteration in the yarn properties that possibly occurs during the detwisting process has been experimentally studied. A small reduction in yarn tenacity and hairiness and slight changes in other yarn properties have been observed. It is shown that the yarn steam setting is essential for getting the best results in spirality reduction. The avoidance of any time delay between yarn detwisting and fabric knitting contributes positively to the minimization of fabric spirality.|
