Weavability of Cold-sized Worsted Warp Yarns
Production of light weight high quality worsted fabric needs fine count single warp yarn. Single worsted yarns are highly extensible and have too much hairiness to be woven as warp. Sizing is essential to make these yarns weavable. Conventional sizing is not suitable for woolen/worsted warps because of their stretchability and heat sensitivity. Cold sizing is found to be one of the alternatives to solve this problem. However, selection of appropriate size composition and application technique are key parameters for successful weaving of these yarns.
