The effect of the presence of elasthane in the structure of chenille yarn on the abrasion resistance, dimensional and physical properties of Plain jersey fabrics is investigated in this experimental study. Based on the results obtained, it can be said that using elasthane in one of the cores of the chenille yarn results in the lowest amount of pile loss after abrasion, and a lower tendency to shrinkage, similar to that of fabrics without elasthane. It was also observed that for both dry relaxed and tumble dried fabrics, pile loss tends to be lower on the back of the knit structure.
