Yarn is the fundamental unit of fabric. Yarn contains a lot of properties (variables) which can affect knitted fabric finished quality. Carded and combed yarns of same count have many different properties because of different manufacturing process. Combed yarn is of superior quality and carded yarn is of inferior quality. The main purpose of this paper is to find out or investigate carded and combed yarn effect on knitted fabric finished quality such as GSM, Shrinkage, Spirality, Resistance of Pilling and Color fastness properties.
