This study aimed to examine the quality parameters of knitted fabrics produced from sirospun, single and two-ply yarns. To achieve this, knitted fabrics were produced from these yarns with yarn numbers of 29.5 tex, 33 tex and 37 tex. Then sirospun yarn fabrics with 6 mm, 8 mm and 11 mm strand spacings were produced to observe the effect of strand spacing on fabric quality parameters. The experimental results show that the unevenness, hairiness, strength and elongation values of sirospun yarns are similar to or better than those of single and conventional plied yarns for all samples. However, enlarging the strand spacing causes small reductions in hairiness, strength and elongation values. The results of the fabric performance test show that the bursting strength, abrasion resistance and pilling resistance of sirospun yarn fabrics are as good as those of single and conventional plied yarn fabrics. However, the spirality values of plied yarn fabrics are slightly lower than those of sirospun yarn fabrics at finer yarn count values. These results indicate that sirospun yarn may be a good alternative for plied yarn due to its extremely low production cost and high quality values.

Abstract:

 

This study aimed to examine the quality parameters of knitted fabrics produced from sirospun, single and two-ply yarns. To achieve this, knitted fabrics were produced from these yarns with yarn numbers of 29.5 tex, 33 tex and 37 tex. Then sirospun yarn fabrics with 6 mm, 8 mm and 11 mm strand spacings were produced to observe the effect of strand spacing on fabric quality parameters. The experimental results show that the unevenness, hairiness, strength and elongation values of sirospun yarns are similar to or better than those of single and conventional plied yarns for all samples. However, enlarging the strand spacing causes small reductions in hairiness, strength and elongation values. The results of the fabric performance test show that the bursting strength, abrasion resistance and pilling resistance of sirospun yarn fabrics are as good as those of single and conventional plied yarn fabrics. However, the spirality values of plied yarn fabrics are slightly lower than those of sirospun yarn fabrics at finer yarn count values. These results indicate that sirospun yarn may be a good alternative for plied yarn due to its extremely low production cost and high quality values.
