What do you mean by textured yarn?

Why are yarns textured?

Texturing gives filament yarn the desired volume and elasticity. Texturing improves the use characteristics and hygienic properties of synthetic yarns. Yarns are basically of two types, Spun yarn and filament yarns. Spun yarn is made by twisting or otherwise bonding staple fibres together to make a cohesive thread.

Which fibres are used to manufacture textured yarns?

It is produced by the twisting of compound synthetic fibers (polyamide, polyester, and other fibers) up to 2,500–5,000 twists per meter, heat setting of the twisted yarn, and untwisting of the set yarn. The yarn assumes a spiral shape and acquires high stretchability (up to 400 percent) and fluffiness.

What is a textured filament?

In the broadest sense, any continuous filament yarn which differs from the uniform appearance and smooth texture normally associated with filament yarns might be called a textured yarn.

How are textured yarns made?

Texturing process where the yarn goes around a magnetic spindle (the PIN) that creates a twist which is then fixed by heat. Texturing process where air streams and high pressure make the filaments in a yarn tangling together – resulting the yarn to be hairier, thus feeling softer and more like a spun yarn.

Which material is yarn?

Yarn is a strand composed of fibres, filaments (individual fibres of extreme length), or other materials, either natural or synthetic, suitable for use in the construction of interlaced fabrics, such as woven or knitted types.
