Abstract

This study was conducted to identify the factors and the interactions, which affect the load and elongation at the first break of gimp yarns. The experimental design had seven factors: two levels each. It was found that using two single yarns, instead of a similar ply yarn, for the core component, caused the increase of values of load and elongation at the first break. The effect component contributed positively to the load and elongation when it was a cotton yarn rather than a bamboo yarn. This study contributes to a broader understanding of process–structure–property relationships of fancy yarn.
