The compact spinning system was based on the conventional ring-spinning system. The vast majority of previous work deals with the properties of compact yarn in yarn form. In this study, we inspected fabric samples knitted from compact spun yarn in comparison with fabric samples knitted from classic ring-spur yarn. Knitted double jersey fabrics from 100% combed ring-spun and compact cotton yarns of the same raw material blend were used. The pilling properties, bursting strength and abrasion resistance of these fabrics at different process steps were tested. The effects of enzymatic treatment and washing & dyieng on these fabrics were also examined.
