The Contribution of Fiber Friction to Yarn Quality

Hong Guo, Yehia El Mogahzy and Roy M. Broughton, Jr.


In this work, forty-seven upland cottons and corresponding rotor and ring spun yarns have been studied. The fiber friction parameters, fiber properties and yarn quality parameters have been measured and the data was analyzed statistically. It was found that there is an optimum level of friction between fibrous assembly at which good spinning performance and yarn quality can be achieved.
