Abstract: The objectives of the study were to determine after use and laundering the yarn characteristics of yarn number and diameter and to determine die effect of changes in these characteristics on abrasion resistance. Yarn number measurements were made using the Suter Yarn Numbering Balance. Yarn diameter measurements of longitudinally mounted specimens were made using the Visopan Microprojector. Abrasion resistance measurements were made using the occurrence of yarn breakdown method with the Taber Abraser. The sample of this study consisted of the experimental sheetings used at the North Carolina station for Phase I of the Southern Regional Research Project SM-18. Measurements were made on specimens from sheets withdrawn following zero, thirty and sixty periods of use and laundering.
