The yarn is the core ingredient on which the textile industry runs. Yarn can be obtained from natural products like plants, insects and animals or can be synthesized artificially. In short, yarn is the continuous assembly of fibres suitable for stitching, knitting, weaving and other textile production.  Yarns are categorized based on their physical structure and performance characteristics.

Kneedles and Yarn

Types Of  Yarns

Cotton Yarn

It is obtained from plant and has an S-twist arrangement. It is environmentally friendly and has no elasticity. Cotton yarn thread count ranges from Ne20 to Ne100- single and multifold

Synthetic Yarn (compact weave)

Synthetic yarns are mostly made from polyester, elastane, and acrylics. The count ranges from Ne10 to Ne60- single and multifold.

Nylon yarn

It is a synthetic yarn used widely for commercial purposes due to its tenacity and resilience nature. The count ranges from Ne6 toNe66- single and multifold. The lower range is used for the manufacturing of garments and higher end for industrial products.

Blended Yarn

The composition of two or more materials (like cotton, viscose, acrylic, wool, bamboo, Lycra, modal, and linen) result in the formation of blended yarn. The count ranges from Ne10 to Ne60- single and multifold

Spandex yarn

It is a synthetic fibre widely popular due to its elastic nature. It is also known as Lycra. The count ranges from 20D to 70D.

Viscose Yarn

Essentially made from a cellulose base, Viscose yarn is known for its tenacity and colour fastness. The count for this yarn ranges from Ne10 to Ne40 - single and multifold.

Mercerized Yarn

Mercerization is done mostly for cotton fibres to improve their strength, affinity to dyes and lustre properties. The count ranges from Ne20 to Ne120- single and multifold.

Polyester yarn

It is obtained from a natural source like cuticles of plant or can be synthesized artificially. The yarn count ranges from Ne8 to Ne60- single and multifold.

Textured Yarn

This yarn is processed in a manner that helps introduce fine distortions such as loops, crimps or coils along the lengths of the filament.
