Abstract

The development of new spinning technologies has produced cheaper yarns and with it, research into the production and application of woven and knitted fabrics from unconventional yarns. The tensile properties of knitted fabrics made of regenerated cellulose fibres (viscose, Tencel™ and modal) of the same count (20 tex) using ring, rotor and air-jet spun yarn were studied. The force/elongation diagram was analysed in order to detect elastic and plastic areas as well as the area of elastoplastic deformations responsible for the behaviour of knitted fabrics. The yarn raw material affects the elastic area of knitted fabrics made from different yarn structures in the course direction whereby the highest elastic area was obtained in the case of ring spun yarns followed by air-jet and finally rotor spun yarns. Regardless of the raw material, the elastoplastic area of the knitted fabric in the wale direction is the lowest for ring spun yarns. There is no visible trend of knitted fabric elastoplastic areas in the wale direction regarding the yarn type and raw material.
