    Woodhead Publishing Series in Textiles No. 101

     - provides a comprehensive overview of the variety of technical textile yarns available along with individual characteristics and production methods
      - documents advances in textile yarn spinning and texturising featuring compact, rotor and friction spinning
      - assesses different types of technical yarns including plasma-treated yarns for biomedical applications and hybrid yarns for thermoplastic composites
      - examines of the modification of textile yarn structures for functional applications reviewing both bulk modification and the inclusion of micro-pores

    Technical yarns are produced for the manufacture of technical textiles. As the range of technical textiles is rapidly increasing, an understanding of the range of yarns available and their properties is important, in order to be able to meet the requirements of the intended end-use.

    Part one of the book begins by reviewing the advances in yarn production. Topics examine the advances in textile yarn spinning, modification of textile yarn structures, yarn hairiness and its reduction and coatings for technical textile yarns. The second group of chapters describes the range of technical yarns, such as electro-conductive textile yarns, novel yarns and plasma treated yarns for biomedical applications. Technical sewing threads and biodegradable textile yarns are also discussed.
