The aim of this research was to analyze the influence of centipede yarn production parameters on bending and abrasion behavior of woven fabrics produced with these yarns. The influence of the centipede yarn structure and raw material on the above mentioned properties of fabrics with centipede yarns was established during the investigation. In the first part of the experimental study, the centipede yarns were produced on a Crochet machine with different pile materials as Polyestei; Polyester/Floss, Cotton, Cotton/Floss, and Floss; in the second part of the study centipede yarns were produced with four different count (150, 300, 600 and 900 den, respectively 16,6, 33,3, 66,6 and 100 tex) band yarns and two different chain numbers (12 and 14 chain/cm). The centipede yarns were used as filling in the woven fabric construction. According to the results of the statistical analyses bending properties in warp and weft directions and abrasion property of the fabrics were affected by the centipede yarn structural parameters which are band yarn count and chain number On the other hand, abrasion property and only weft direction bending length of the fabrics were affected by pile material.
