    Effect of Slub Yarn Ratio on Single Jersey Knitted Fabric Properties
    Author(s): Fouda AFouda A

    Slub yarns are widely used in Single Jersey knitted fabrics to improve their appearance. This research aims to study the influence of slub yarn ratio on physical and mechanical properties of Single Jersey knitted fabric. Ten single jersey knitted fabrics were produced using four different ratios of slub yarns at two levels of ground yarn counts. Physical properties of knitted fabric were measured such as fabric density, thickness, shrinkage, spirality, color properties and thermal comfort properties. Also, mechanical properties of knitted fabric were measured including bursting strength and abrasion resistance. Results showed that increasing percentage of slub yarns used up to 50% improved fabric density, spirality and shrinkage after repeated washing, while the weight loss percent due to abrasion decreased. Fabric thermal resistance increased and air permeability decreased; while the.. Read More»
