Abstract

In this experimental study, the effects of the production parameters of boucle yarn, such as overfeed ratio, the binding yarn twist direction and twist amount on the properties of 2 x 1 and 2 x 2 rib structures have been investigated It was observed that changes in the studied parameters affected the stitch density, thickness and abrasion behaviour of both types of fabric.
