Abstract

The effect of twist on tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and pilling resistance of plain-woven fabric has been studied. The plain-woven fabric has been produced from open-end spun cotton yarn. The weft yarn has been produced at 4 different twist levels (900, 905, 910, and 915 TPM) and the effect of twist levels is also studied. To examine the effect of twist, four different samples of plain-woven fabric are produced from these yarns. From the ANOVA results, it is found that with an increment in twist level of the yarn, there is a significant increment in tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and pilling resistance of the fabric.
