The performance of any textile structure under most service conditions depends to a great extent on its bending behaviour. The importance of the bending behaviour is apparent in the folding of sleeping bags or the billowing of tents or for the apparels in the parts like knee, elbow, sleeves etc. This study discusses instruments now available for measuring bending properties of fabrics.

Polyester and Nylon are the two important synthetic fibres with many superior properties. However, their surface characteristics are poor. These yarns are subjected to texturising process in order to improve their surface characteristics. Air-Jet Texturising is one of the most convenient texturising processes for all types of filament yarns. In this study, Polyester, Nylon and Polyester/Nylon blended air-Jet textured yarns were produced under the same process parameters using filaments of same fineness. Nylon air-textured yarns showed more loops than Polyester textured yarn. Loop stability of Nylon textured yarn was found to be better than Polyester textured yarns. Polyester textured yarns reported higher physical bulk than Nylon textured yarns. Polyester/nylon blended yarn exhibits better loop stability, lower physical bulk, lower friction and more moisture transportation than polyester air-textured yarn.
