What Do You Know About Texturized Yarn?

What Do You Know About Texturized Yarn?

Textured yarn is a synthetic filament yarns which is tend to made either stretchy or bulky or by heating or other techniques. Yarns are normally made more grounded, all the more firmly bent, smoother, and more even than the filling, or transversely, yarns.

The texturing yarn are thoroughly used for textile purposes. If we talk about drawn textured yarn, then it is superbly handled using modern technology, and rich grade raw material. This type of textured yarn is frequently used in weaving, knitting, cordage, braiding, sewing, webbing, and carpet purpose.

Either it is a single yarn or textured yarn, do you know a lot of changes have taken place in their manufacturing process? Yes, different textures which result from adjustments in the spinning process of simple yarns are recognized by few terms as:

  • Boucle yarn is one of the most broadly utilized extravagant yarns. It is portrayed by an impact yarn shaping tight circles that venture from the body of the yarn at customary spans


  • Slub yarns are made by shifting the strain of yarn bend at customary stretches to create delicate, thick lengthened low contort zones (slub)


  • Snarl yarn is made by bending at one time at least two yarns held at various pressure. The impact yarn structures exchanging unclosed circles along the two sides of the center yarn


  • Spiral or Corkscrew yarn is made by turning together two yarns of various thickness and bend, one delicate and hefty and the other fine. The hefty yarn is taken care of quicker than the fine yarn and winds around it in a twisting development


Process of Texturing Yarns

Texturing is a treatment wherein level fibers are contorted to have circles, loops, twists, or creases along their length to acquire an expanded cumbersomeness, porosity, delicateness, and flexibility in certain circumstances, and that I the fundamental target of finishing.

Let’s move to fundamental principles of texturing

Principles of Texturing Yarn

After drawing, drawn fibers are twisted with or without curve into a bundle. For many applications, the flat filament yarn is textured in order to gain increased softness. On other hand, the thermoplastic yarns are used in many texturing processes

The inter-fiber bond breaks and reform throughout the texturing yarn process, whereas a filament yarn is generally textured through three steps;

  1. To distort the filament in yarn so that inter-fiber bond is broken. Twisting or other means are further used to distort the filaments within yarn
  2. To heat the yarn which breaks bond between polymers allowing filaments to stay crimped
  3. To cool yarn in distorted state to enable new bonds to form between polymers. When yarn is untwisted or released from its distorted state, the filaments remain in a coiled, or crimped condition


Benefits of Textured Yarn

The textured yarn is quite beneficial for textile business in terms of following major aspects;

  • Higher bulk
  • Greater water absorption
  • Increased warmth
  • Good draping capacity
  • Higher energetic properties
  • Better dimensional stability
  • Better air permeability
  • Pleasing hand, & appearance
  • Increased hairiness
  • Reduced strength
  • Abrasion resistance


In What Other Methods the textured yarn can be produced?

The textured yarns can also be produced by other following methods;

  • False-twist coiling method
  • Stuffer-box crimping method
  • Gear crimping method
  • Air jet texturing method
  • Knit-de-knit crinkling method
