Abstract:

The compact spinning system produces a yarn structure which is different from the structure of conventional spun yarn as the result of the elimination of the spinning triangle. New perspectives introduced by compact spinning have proved their worth in all textile processes, from yarn production to the finishing stages. In this study, the seam strengths of sewing threads produced by conventional and compact spun-ring systems were investigated together with strength tests before and after washing. The results were evaluated with SPSS software. It was found out that the difference between the seam strength of sewing threads produced from conventional ring and compact yarns were not of major statistical significance, and nor was the difference in seem strength before and after washing. Additionally, the effect of the gassing process on compact sewing threads was established. The results allow us to recommende that the gassing process should not be applied to sewing threads made of compact yarns.
