Abstract: The major objective of this thesis was to determine the relation between yarn characteristics and the wrinkle recovery of selected sheeting made from cotton fibers with varying properties of length and strength. Yarn characteristics were determined by measuring yarn number and yarn diameter. Wrinkle recovery was measured by the Monsanto Wrinkle Recovery Tester. Sheets sampled for this study were those which had been used at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, as part of Phase II of Southern Regional Research Project SM-18. A total of 240 sheets which had been withdrawn from the project following 0, 5, 15, 30, 45, and 60 periods of use and laundering and following 0, 5, 15, 30, 45, and 60 periods of laundering only were used for testing. Measurements of both warp and filling yarns were obtained in the tests for yarn number, yarn diameter, and wrinkle recovery. An analysis of variance which was the statistical procedure developed for Southern Regional Project SM-18 was used to analyze the data and to determine the F ratios. Correlation coefficients were computed to determine the relationship between yarn characteristics and wrinkle recovery.
