- Standard Test Method for Yarn Number Based on Short-Length Specimens
- standard by ASTM International, 07/15/2017
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the yarn number of all types of cotton, woolen, worsted, and man-made fiber yarns taken from packages; or from any textile fabrics in which the yarns are intact and can be removed in measurable lengths. The test method is not applicable to yarns taken from napped or cut pile fabrics. Because this test method is based on short-length specimens, the results should only be considered as approximations of yarn number.
Note 1: For a more precise procedure for the determination of yarn number, refer to Test Method D1907.
