The yarn is subjected to many internal stresses due to the raw material and yarn spinning steps used. When the yarn is relieved of the stresses it is subjected to, the yarn reacts inversely to the rotation defined as yarn liveliness. Yarn liveliness, may cause the spirality problem especially in the structure of knitted fabrics. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of yarn spinning system, yarn count and twist coefficient on the tendency of yarn snarling. In this study, yarns were produced using 100% cotton materials, in five different spinning systems, taking two different twist coefficients into consideration, and in two yarn counts. Yarn liveliness values of samples were measured by Kringel Factor Meter Test Apparatus. As the twist coefficient of the yarns increases and the yarn becomes thicker, the snarling tendency increases. However, the highest yarn liveliness values were seen in the compact spinning system.
