Abstract

In this study, an experimental work is. presented to determine the effects of two different fancy yarn structures (chenille and macaroni) and four different raw materials (acrilic, cotton, polyester and viscose) on the abrasion and tensile propertries of woven upholstery fabrics. Results were evaluated by SPSS statistical program. All test results were assessed at a confidence level of at least 95% (at most 5% significance level). The abrasion resistance and tenacity values of chenille and macaroni yarns were measured too. Abrasion resistance and tenacity values of chenille and macaroni yarns are affected significantly by material type and fancy yarn structure. Macaroni yarns show higher. weight loss (%) ratio and tenacity values than chenille yams. Thickness values of chenille fabrics are higher than macaroni fabrics. Weight loss (%) values of chenille fabrics are higher than macaroni fabrics. The macaroni fabrics show higher stress values at max. load than chenille fabrics. The cotton and polyester yarns. are abraded less than others. Polyester yams and fabrics show the highest tensile strength values. Viscose yarns and fabrics less resistant to abrasion.
