What is elongation in yarn?
* yarn elongation is stretching of yarn before breakage of yarn and it is related with workability of machine and process
* yarn elongation is nothing but the the fibre strength
There are three commercial methods of spinning yarn into the product we see at the store. They are called Ring Spun, Rotor Spun, and Friction Spun. Each method produces different results in the yarn. Increasing the elongation percent in Ring Spun yarn requires a fiber preparation method of carding (brushing). This will produce a softer, longer yarn whis is best used for knitted items.
How does the type of spring affect the relationship between elongation and magnitude of the spring force?
To calculate percent elongation with an equation: [(final length - initial length) / initial length] x 100 = percent elongation On a graph - To calculate percent elongation, draw a line to the x-axis from the point of fracture parallel to the straight line part of the graph. The extension at this point is then divided by the gauge length.
Yarn comes in different "gatherings"--ways that it can be sold. Your question mentioned 2 out of the three: ball of yarn and skein of yarn. The third would be a Hank of yarn. A hank is a skein of yarn (which is yarn in a large oblong shape, and tied in a few places around the skein to maintain a bit of control over the yarn staying in that loose shape), which has been twisted…
