Torsional properties of yarn directly affect the quality of the produced textile products. The hand feel, appearance and shape retention characteristics of the fabric are closely related the yarn torsional stability. In the past the average torsional properties of yarn was extensively studied and measured experimentally. The variability of torsional properties along the yarn was not taken into serious consideration. It is strongly believed that the irregularity of loop shape in a plain knitted fabric is highly related to the largely variable yarn torsional rigidity. The study of very short term variation of yarn torsional properties will open up a new territory in textile research.
