Abstract:

In this study, the effects of pile and core yarn material types on the abrasion and bending behaviour of chenille knitted fabrics were studied. For this purpose different chenille yarns were produced from seven types of pile yarn material and two types of core yarn material at the same yarn counts. The different pile yarn fibre types used for the production of chenille yarns were comfort fibres like tencel, bamboo, modal, soybean, 50/50% soybean-tencel and conventional fibres like viscose and cotton; the different core yarn types were polyester and viscose. The abrasion resistance of knitted fabrics made from these yarns was measured with a Martindale Abrasion tester. According to the results of statistical analyses performed using the experimental values, physical properties like mass and thickness loss due to abrasion were affected by the pile and core yarn types. Course way, wale way and fabric bending rigidity properties were not affected by the core yarn fibre types. The course way bending rigidity property was affected by the pile yarn fibre types, while the wale way and fabric bending rigidity properties were affected by the pile yarn fibre types for undyed yarns.
