In this study, there is an experimental work is presented to effect of the some ofyarn, knitting and finishing parameters on the spirality of knitting fabric structure. Inthis study effect of the yarn twist, machine diameter and knitting weight on the spiralityof knitted fabric are investigated and presented. And also; finishing parameters on thespirality of knitted fabric are investigated. Also; effect of the dry relaxation, wetrelaxation, washing relaxation, dye an finishing prosess and washing in vascatör prosesson the spirality of knitted fabric are investigated. And also; effect of the thickness,weight, loops? yarn length, density parameters on the spirality of knitted fabric areinvestigated.In the first chapter the purpose and aim of the study are presented.In the second chapter a summary of the literature survey is given.In the third chapter, properties of yarns, fabrics and knitting machines usedthroughout the experimental work, testing procedures and measurement methods areexplained.In the fourth chapter experimental results are presented.In the fifth chapter with the aim of experimental results spirality and physicalproperties of fabrics are discussed.
