Core spun yarns are the type of yarn in which a core material, either filament or sheath, is wrapped or twisted around by fibres. The core material can be made of various materials, such as cotton, and wrapped in polyester fibres, which provide strength and durability to the yarn. The fibres that wrap around the core can be made of different materials, such as wool, cotton or synthetic fibres, providing softness, comfort and other desirable properties to the yarn.
Core spun yarns are often used in applications where durability and strength are important, such as industrial fabrics . They can also be used in applications where softness and comfort are desired, such as in knitwear and apparel. These yarns can provide a unique combination of properties that are not found in traditional yarns, making them a popular choice for many different applications.
Features of core spun yarns
Core spun yarns typically have:
- High strength
- High tenacity
- Greater uniformity in size and strength
- High durability
- High breathability
- Better stretchability
- Good moisture-absorbing capability
- Better ply security
- Superior abrasion resistance properties
- Aesthetic value
Benefits of using core spun yarns
The wrapper of the core spun thread can be made out of staple polyester or staple cotton, giving the yarn a fibrous substance that has several benefits, including:
- A softer and smoother feel than fully continuous filament threads
- A matte finish stitch visual better than the spun thread structure
- Superior colour fastness, abrasion and chemical resistance
- Higher strength as compared to spun polyester yarns
- Unparalleled “union dyeing” due to its one-step dyeing process
- Superior needle heat resistance
- Wash-down stitch appearance
Applications of core spun raw materials
Core spun threads are widely used in a variety of sewing thread applications due to their durability and versatility. They are utilised in apparel and clothing manufacturing, where they are commonly used in the manufacturing of garments and textile products. Due to their superior strength and frictional properties, core spun yarns are used for garments such as denim. Core spun yarns are preferred for sewing applications as they decrease the number of broken stitches during hems or seams on heavy-weight denim fabrics and withstand heavy washes. Other sewing thread applications include the creation of blouses, lingerie, shirts, leather products and uniforms.
Industrial applications of core spun raw materials
Apart from the textile industry, the core spun raw material has a variety of industrial applications, including the automotive industry, medical industry and aerospace industry. Core spun yarns are used in medical applications such as wound dressings, surgical gowns and drapes. Furthermore, core spun yarns are used in the automotive industry to create high-performance fabrics for car interiors, while aerospace applications include the creation of composite materials for aircraft and spacecraft components.
