Özet

In this study, some of the yarn and fabric properties of vortex, OE-rotor and conventional ring spun yarns produced from cotton and viscose fibres in three different yarn counts were compared. Particularly, fibre distribution in yarn structure yarn-to-yarn and yarn-to-solid friction properties, water absorbency after repeated washings, drying and flame resistance of vortex yarns were investigated. The results indicated that contrary to expectations, vortex spinning system cannot always enhance to produce the less hairy yarns than OE-rotor and ring spun yarns, and hairiness of vortex yarns changes depending on fibre type and yarn count. Furthermore, vortex yarns were characterized with the moderate yarn irregularity and yarn-to-yarn coefficient, lowest strength and elongation, highest yarn-to-solid friction coefficient, stiffer character, higher water uptake and quicker water absorption, slower drying ability, higher resistance to washing but lower durability to the ignition.
