An Investigation into the Effect of Fabric Structure and Yarn Twist Direction on the Curling Behavior of Single Jersey Weft Knitted Fabrics

An Investigation into the Effect of Fabric Structure and Yarn Twist Direction on the Curling Behavior of Single Jersey Weft Knitted Fabrics

In this work, the curling behavior of single jersey weft-knitted fabrics produced from different structures and yarn twist directions is studied. Curling behavior was characterized in terms of curling surface in both course and wale directions. It is concluded that the curling surface value of weft-knitted fabric samples produced from the Z-twist ring-spun yarn is higher than that of the samples produced from the S-twist cotton ring-spun yarn. The comparison between different fabric structures reveals that the presence of tuck stitches in fabric structure results in a (or leads to a) lower curling surface.
