Different types of acrylic yarns such as twisted spun acrylic yarn 3-ply (Sample A), relaxed ring spun acrylic yarn 3-ply (Sample B), repco spun acrylic yarn 2-ply (Sample C) and relaxed repco acrylic yarn 2-ply (Sample D) were knitted into fabrics under different tension and a comparative study was made on the properties of these fabrics. The properties studied are fabric abrasion resistance, fabric wettability, fabric thickness and fabric flammability test. The results obtained suggested that the knitted fabrics produced from Sample B and Sample D were better than the knitted fabrics produced from Sample A and Sample C in terms of fabric abrasion resistance and fabric thickness. Analysis of the results also shows that all the four samples have good flammability rating.
