Polyester has many outstanding properties as a textile material viz. high wet and dry resistance, dimensional stability under wet and dry conditions and high strength. Keeping in view the unique properties offered by the polyester, the study was conducted to produce cotton covered/polyester core yarn on a modified ring frame. Such a yarn has cotton like feel and much higher strength than pure cotton yarn. The results showed that the yarn properties were effected by the percentage of polyester filaments in the blend. Similarly twist factor and roving positions also exerted highly significant influence upon count, lea-strength and CLSP value.
