Abstract

The denim has an important place in textile sector due to its comfortable, fashionable, durable and affordable properties. Denim sector has to constantly evolve in order to meet varying consumer expectations.  In this study, dual-core multi-twist slub yarns have been developed to give both functional and visual effects to denim fabrics. Effects of core (elastomultiester and elastane) draft ratios on unevenness, hairiness, tenacity and breaking elongation properties of these yarns were investigated.  As a result of the study, it was found that the EME (Elastomultiester-I. core) draft values have a statistically significant effect on the unevenness and breaking elongation values of the dual-core slub yarns; the elastane (II. core) draft values have also a statistically significant effect on hairiness and breaking elongation values of yarns.
