Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of core-spun yarn on the quick-dry property of towels. This study focused on five different raw materials (modal, cotton, polyester, bamboo, viscose) which are the most frequently used in towel production. Seven different core yarns and five different conventional yarns were produced with these fibres on a ring spinning machine. These yarns were used in the weft direction of the towels. Samples produced with the same ground and pile warp yarns were subjected to constant dyeing conditions. All samples were tested for strength, softness, hydrophilicity and quick drying. As a result, polyester core yarn on the towels did not negatively affect basic properties such as water absorbency, softness and strength. However, the usage of polyester core yarns provided better quick dry properties than that of conventional yarns.
