The properties of the supply yam and the processing parameters together determine the final properties of air-jet-textured yams. An investigation is reported on how variations in overfeed, air-pressure, and texturing speed, wet or dry processing, and the use of an impact element each affect the properties of the yam textured . The test plan and the test methods are described, prior to a report of the test results. It is concluded that the test results agree with the predictions made from the postulated mechanism of loop formation.
