The basic parameters describing the structure of chenille fancy yarns produced on a chenille yarn machine have been characterised. The effect of the properties of the component yarns, and that of machine parameters on the final count of the chenille yarns, have been studied. For this purpose chenille yarns were produced in different pile lengths, twist levels, yarn counts of component yarns, and an expression is derived to determine the final count of these chenille yarns. Correlation analysis confirmed a strong linear relationship with a high value of correlation coefficient (above 0.95) between the final count values of Yarn samples obtained from the expression (formula) and that obtained from the measurements.
