ABSTRACT

Yarns reflect the characteristics of its constituent fibres and the characteristics of the fabric arise from the structure of the yarns, from which it is composed. PC blended yarn of 24s were prepared at five TM levels for both S and Z twists and then doubled in S and Z directions. Finally fabric samples were prepared at power loom using the doubled yarn weft. It was concluded from this study that the yarn with TM 4 at SS combination in folding was the best to achieve optimum fabric tearing strength.
