Scope

This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the direction of twist in yarns,
the amount of twist, in terms of turns per unit length, and the change in length on untwisting, by the
direct counting method.
This International Standard is applicable to
a) single yarns (spun and filament),
b) plied yarns, and
c) cabled yarns.
Separate procedures are given for each type of yarn. The method is designed primarily for yarns in
packages, but, with special precautions, the procedures can be used for yarns taken from fabrics. It is
not suitable for the determination of twist in a monofilament.
