Conventional twisted yarn
A large number of yarn-finishing methods have now evolved from the original term of "twisting" which merely meant the intertwining of two or more yarns.
The Fein-Elast Group specialises in the following yarn-twisting processes:
- Ring-twisted yarn
- two for one twisting (filament)
- Uptwist yarn
To manufacture Cordonett on the Lezzeni twisting machines shown here, the individual thread is first hard twisted. Then, two or three of these individual threads are twisted together in opposite directions. The materials used are filament yarns such as viscose, polyamide and polyester.
These yarns ideally lend themselves for producing lingerie lace. To create the desired design, organzine is frequently used as effect yarn. Moreover, these twisted yarns are used as embroidery and sewing threads, as well as selvedge yarns but also for various technical applications.
Double-deck twisters are used to produce a great variety of elastic and non-elastic blended yarns, either with synthetic/synthetic or synthetic/staple fibres, which are mostly used for knitted fabrics.
Twists can be distinguished from single yarns by their enhanced evenness and stability, reduced pilling and better wear resistance.
