Abstract:

This study attempts to investigate the influence of different cellulose yarns on the structure and physical properties of knitted fabrics, such as loop length, wale and course spacing, the loop shape factor, the area density of knits, etc. In this work, the behaviour of manmade bamboo yarns and knits in comparison with other cellulose yarns is presented. It is stated that the prediction of the physical properties of knits from new generation fibres in accordance with widely investigated common fibres is incorrect without appropriate experiments. It was found that man-made bamboo knits are similar to cotton knits considering geometrical and structural properties and are similar to viscose fibres taking into account some physical properties. The physical reasons of these similarities and differences are discussed.
