3. What is Yarn Twist

Yarn twist means that in order to make the yarn have certain physical and mechanical properties such as strength, elasticity, elongation, gloss, feel, etc., the cotton yarn must be changed by twisting, and the fiber structure is used to twist the yarn. Relative angular displacement occurs between the original straight and parallel fibers and the yarn axis to change the structure of the yarn. The thick strip gradually shrinks from its width during twisting, and the two sides are gradually folded to be wrapped into the center of the yarn strip Twisted triangles. In twisted triangles, the width and cross-section of the sliver change from a flat ribbon to a cylindrical yarn. For staple fibers, twisting is mainly to increase the strength of the yarn. The twisting of filaments can not only improve the strength of the yarn, but also produce some effect.

4. What is S twist and Z twist in yarn

The twist direction refers to the oblique direction of the fibers in the single yarn or the single yarn in the strand after the yarn is twisted. It is divided into Z twist and S twist. After twisting, the twist of the yarn is inclined from the lower right corner to the upper left corner, and the inclination direction is consistent with the middle of “S”, which is called S twist or smooth twist; the twist direction of the yarn is from the lower left corner to the upper right corner, and the inclined direction is ” The central part of Z ”is called Z twist or backhand twist. Generally, Z twist is used for single yarn, and S twist is used for strand.
