What is Zero Twist Yarn
Complete Description of Zero Twist Yarn
This is a type of yarn that is made by twisting two or more strands of yarn together in the opposite direction to that in which they were originally spun. This gives the yarn a higher twist rate and makes it stronger and more durable. It is often used in carpets, towels and rugs because it can withstand heavy wear and tear.
In this process initially yarn is produced on spinning machines like a normal procedure and then it is doubled with a yarn called PVA. PVA is a yarn which dissolved in water after washing at a certain temperature. After doubling the normal yarn with PVA it is untwisted on a twisting machine. This process untwists the yarn and PVA lapped this yarn and keep the fibers joint with each other. Later after converting it into fabric it is washed in hot water and the PVA is dissolved in this process. This fabric is very soft and skin friendly.
