A common representation of raw material fineness

- Jun 05, 2017 -

Denier (d):

"D" is a fixed-length representation. It is the weight of the 9,000-meter-long silk. Such as 9000 meters long silk weight 1 gram, called 1 denier; such as weighing 100 grams is called 100 denier. The denier's value is proportional to the thickness of the thread, and the larger the denier, the thicker the wire is. The fineness of all filaments in the fiber is denoted by "D".


Public branch (N):

The branch is a flattened fineness unit. It refers to 1 gram of yarn with the length of the number of meters. Such as the amount of 1 gram of yarn, the length of 100 meters, the yarn count is 100 kilo (100N); length of 50 meters, the yarn is 50 branches (50N). The value of "N" is inversely proportional to the thickness of the yarn. The higher the "N" value, the finer the yarn is, and vice versa. Silk, silk, wool are expressed in public support. Ma sometimes with public support.


English (S):


The British branch is a flattened fineness unit. It refers to a 1-pound yarn with a multiple of 840 yards long. Several times that is a number of support. Such as weighing a pound of yarn length of 25200 yards, is 840 yards 30 times, then the yarn is 30 British branch (30S). The value of "S" is inversely proportional to the thickness of the yarn. The higher the value of "S", the finer the yarn, and vice versa. Cotton, viscose staple fibers and blended synthetic fibers are expressed in English (S). Ma sometimes use "S"
