What is Mohair Yarn Testing:

Mohair yarn occupies the intermediate position in the manufacture of fabric from raw material. Yarn results are essential for both estimating the quality of raw material and for controlling the quality of fabric produced. The important characteristics of yarn being tested are described below shortly-

  1. Yarn twist
  2. Linear density
  3. Yarn strength
  4. Yarn elongation
  5. Yarn evenness
  6. Yarn hairiness etc.

Twist Yarns:

Twist of yeoman yarns are  called turns which is twisting the fiber.

Linear Density of Yarn:

The excellence of the yarn is usually expressed in terms of its linear thickness. There are a amount of systems and units for expressing yarn fineness. But they are categorised as follows

  1. Direct system
  2. Indirect System

Checking More Testing:

  1. Uneven shade
  2. Oil spot
  3. Neps
  4. Crease mark
  5. Machine Stoppage mark
  6. Listing
  7. Line mark
  8. Pick missing
  9. Double yam
  10. Dead cotton
  11. Bowing
  12. Fly yam contamination

Experiment Name: To measure the wash fastness.

The “color fastness” of a colored textile is defined as its resistance to these changes when subjected to particulates of conditions. It follows that color fastness must be specified in terms of these changes and expressed in terms of the magnitude.

Color-fastness to wash:

Wash-fastness is perhaps the most common once to be carried out: It is necessary to bear in mind that there are two types of wash

  1. Domestic wash
  2. Industrial wash

Which can be carried out with different of severity and for this reason there are 5 normalized types of with soap and at least 16 normalized washing tests for domestic and commercial laundering using a standard detergent.

The different characteristics are indicated in the table below:

Characteristics of test for fastness to washing with soap

Now we shall describe washing test no. 1 as an example to explain the mode of the operation.

If the sample adjusted to the test is fabric a rectangular measuring I0x4 cm- is cut out and placed the multifibre of the same size. The, composite specimen is placed in a container of the sample dyeing machine along with a soapy solution with a liquor ratio 1:50. The machine is started and the sample is streed 30 min

B = The left side distance of the specimen from the stitch line after wash.

Experiment Name: To measure the fastness to light with the Megaosol light fastness tester Procedure:

  1. Cut the four pieces of test specimens according to the length & width wise and attached with the specimen holder.
  2. Then the holder set in to the Megasol light fastness tester.
  3. Then the experiment continued at 72 hours according to the buyer’s requirement.
  4. After 72 hours later the specimen taken from the light fastness tester.
  5. Then the test specimen compare with the Blue scale or computer.

Experiment Name: To measure the GSM of the fabric by GSM cutter.


  1. Cut the fabric with the GSM cutter (gram per square inch).
  2. Weight the fabric with the electric balance.


The weight of the fabric 2.51 gm. That means the GSM of the fabric is 251. Because when we cut the fabric with the GSM cutter then we get I from the 100 meter from the square meter.
