Investigation of End-use Properties of Woven Fabrics with Synthetics Fancy Yarns
Keywords:abrasion resistance, air permeability, fancy yarns structure, mass loss, woven fabric
In this study the change of air permeability and mass loss of woven fabrics with different structure fancy yarns after abrasion test is discussed. One fancy yarn and four cotton yarns in the weft for investigated fabrics in sateen 5/3 weave had been used. The fancy yarns structure was different as well; i. e. fancy yarns with slubs, loops and spiral structure were used. The air permeability of outerwear is very important in the comfort of wear and durability. Abrasion resistance of fabric samples were performed on a Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester by varying number cycles. It was estimated that above-mentioned parameters of yarns influence the end-use properties of fabrics with fancy yarns.
