What is Textured Yarns?

Textured yarns are those yarns that have undergone a texturizing process to alter their appearance and properties. This is achieved by modifying the surface of the yarns or changing their internal structure. Texturizing gives yarns unique characteristics that make them useful in a wide range of textile products, from clothing to home furnishings and beyond.

The texturizing process involves the use of heat, chemicals, or mechanical means to alter the fibers' shape and create a bulkier, more voluminous yarn. Texturizing can produce a variety of effects, such as crimping, curling, or coiling, which can make the yarns more elastic, softer, and more insulating.

Textured yarns are commonly used in knitwear, hosiery, and other stretch fabrics. The added bulk and stretch properties provided by the texturizing process make the yarns ideal for use in activewear, as well as in products where elasticity is required, such as elastic waistbands or sock cuffs.

There are many different types of textured yarns, each with its unique properties and characteristics. Some of the most common types include air-jet textured yarns, false twist textured yarns, and stuffer-box textured yarns.

Each of these processes produces different effects on the yarns, allowing for a wide range of possibilities in terms of texture, appearance, and performance.
