Abstract

The effect of material type, pile length and twisting rate on the abrasion properties of chenille yarns has been studied. Twenty-seven different chenille yarns have been produced using three different twist levels (800, 850 and 900 twists/m) and three different pile lengths (0.7, 0.8 and 1.0 mm) from three different materials (cotton, viscose and acrylic) and then used as weft yarn for producing upholstery fabrics. It is observed that the material type, twist level and pile length have significant effect on the abrasion resistance of chenille yarns. The abrasion resistance of cotton chenille yarns is found to be higher followed by the acrylic chenille yarns and viscose chenille yarns.
