Although the cotton yarn is a hydrophilic fiber, the elongation at break is low and the strength is low. After a slight modification to the weft control mechanism, the cotton yarn can be turned into a woven fiber yarn of a water jet loom. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
