ABSTRACT
Elastane percentage in the core-spun cotton yarn of a specific linear density can be affected in two ways: either by changing the elastane denier or the draft ratio. The purpose of this study was to find out whether different mechanical properties of fabrics woven from such yarns simply depend upon the elastane percentage or whether the method of achieving a desired elastane percentage has specific effects. It was found through regression analyses that both the elastane denier and the draft ratio are almost equally important for fabric tear strength and stretchability, whereas the fabric tensile strength is predominantly influenced by the elastane denier while the fabric recovery after stretch is mainly influenced by the elastane draft ratio.
