Yarns: Characteristics & Types Quiz - Quiz

Ever wondered how much you know about yarns? Check out our online yarn quizzes and learn interesting facts about yarns, their types, characteristics, etc., in the most fun way.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following yarns of same fineness is supposed to have highest strength?

    • A.

      Novelty yarn

    • B.

      Ring spun yarn

    • C.

      Carded yarn

    • D.

      Woollen yarn

    Correct Answer
    B. Ring spun yarn
    Explanation
    Ring spun yarn is supposed to have the highest strength among the given options. This is because ring spinning is a method that produces a tightly twisted yarn, resulting in a stronger and more durable yarn compared to other types. Carded yarn, woollen yarn, and novelty yarn are produced using different spinning techniques that typically result in a less tightly twisted yarn, making them comparatively weaker in terms of strength.

    Novelty yarns are used for:

    • A.

      Strength

    • B.

      Ring spun yarn

    • C.

      Aesthetics

    • D.

      Both

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    D. Both
    Explanation
    Novelty yarns are used for both strength and aesthetics. These types of yarns are designed to have unique textures, colors, and patterns, making them visually appealing and adding visual interest to the fabric or garment they are used in. At the same time, they are also engineered to have good tensile strength, making them suitable for various applications where durability is required. Therefore, novelty yarns serve the purpose of enhancing the appearance of the final product while also providing the necessary strength.

    Example of indirect count is:

    • A.

      Cotton Count

    • B.

      Denier

    • C.

      Tex

    • D.

      Fabric count

    Correct Answer
    A. Cotton Count
    Explanation
    Indirect count refers to a method of measuring the fineness or thickness of a textile material. Cotton count is one such example of indirect count, which is a system used to measure the thickness of cotton yarn. It is calculated by determining the number of hanks of yarn that weigh one pound. The higher the cotton count, the finer and thinner the yarn. This measurement is commonly used in the textile industry to determine the quality and characteristics of cotton yarn.

    2/40s yarn is:

    • A.

      Single yarn

    • B.

      Spun Yarn

    • C.

      Monofilament Yarn

    • D.

      Plied yarn

    Correct Answer
    D. Plied yarn
    Explanation
    A plied yarn is made by twisting two or more single yarns together. This process increases the strength and durability of the yarn. In this case, the yarn is described as "2/40s", which means it is made up of two strands of yarn with a count of 40. Therefore, the correct answer is plied yarn.

  • 5. 

    Cotton yarn can be classified as ______________ yarn only.

    Correct Answer
    Spun
    Explanation
    Cotton yarn can only be classified as spun yarn because spun yarn is made by twisting or spinning fibers together, and cotton fibers are spun to create cotton yarn. Other types of yarn, such as filament yarn, are made from long continuous filaments and are not applicable to cotton yarn. Therefore, spun is the correct classification for cotton yarn.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    In between cotton and polyester, monofilament yarn is possible with ______________ only.

    Correct Answer
    Polyester
    Explanation
    Monofilament yarn refers to a single, continuous strand of yarn. Cotton does not have the properties to be spun into a monofilament yarn, as it is a natural fiber with shorter staple lengths. On the other hand, polyester, being a synthetic fiber, can be extruded into a continuous filament, making it suitable for monofilament yarn production. Therefore, polyester is the only option that can be used to create monofilament yarn.

  • 7. 

    In indirect count, a higher number of yarn fineness denotes a ___________ yarn.

    Correct Answer
    Finer
    Explanation
    In indirect count, a higher number of yarn fineness denotes a finer yarn. This means that the yarn has a smaller diameter or thickness. A finer yarn is generally considered to be of higher quality as it is more delicate and can be used to create finer and more intricate designs in textiles. It is also often associated with a softer and smoother texture.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

                        is a thick and thin yarn with randomly spaced soft, lofty portions produced by irregular intervals of twist and lack of twist in the yarn formation.

    Correct Answer
    Slub yarn
    Explanation
    Slub yarn is a type of yarn that has both thick and thin sections, which are created by irregular intervals of twist and lack of twist during the yarn formation process. These irregularities result in randomly spaced soft and lofty portions in the yarn.
