In this study, multistitched woven nano composites were developed and their in-plane shear properties were characterized. The in-plane shear strength of unstitched structure was low compared to that of the unstitched/nano structures. However, the in-plane shear strength of unstitched structure was high compared to the machine stitched structures because of stitching and stitching yarn-matrix interfacial region. Additionally, the in-plane shear strength of machine stitched/nano composite structure was slightly high compared to the unstitched structure. The multistitched and multistitched/nano structures had limited delamination in their cross-sections. Their delamination regions were confined at a narrow area due to multistitching. This was considered that the developed multistitched/nano composites has better demage tolerance compared to unstitched composites.
