How to Estimate a Yarn or Thread Size Using Diameter

The relationship between yarn diameter and yarn size can be critical in determining the final product and fiber needed to meet specific application requirements.  A yarn or thread size and its diameter will affect the coverage of a yarn in a hose, how large of a yarn will fit into a wire or cable, and is important in determining the needle size required in industrial sewing applications.

Thread and Yarn Tension Control - 4 Benefits of Using a Creel

A creel is simply a frame on which the feeding thread or yarn bobbin is fitted. Often, the creel is fitted with a yarn tensioning device which controls tension variation. Proper placement and stabilization of thread and yarn at the beginning of the product manufacturing process is critical. “Think of a creel as the foundation of a building,” states Neal Fournier, Facilities & Maintenance Manager with Service Thread. “It’s likely that process improvement starts after the yarn enters the production process; however, you will be surprised by the gains that can be made by taking a look at using a creel or refining your creel design.”
