LOOP YARN


Also referred to as a curled yarn, this novelty yarn consists of at least 3 plies. The base yarn is rather coarse and heavy, while the yarn that forms the loops is either a single-ply or a two- or more ply construction. The loops are held in place onto the base yarn through the addition of one or two single yarns that serve to anchor the loops in place. End use fabrics for looped yarns include coating/suiting fabrics, knitted fabrics, home furnishing fabrics, and sweater knits. An excellent example of a looped yarn is a mohair yarn.
