Yarn determines the characteristics of a fabric. Someone who wants to select the most suitable yarn needs the relevant knowledge. In the Com4® yarn seminar 2017, experts from Rieter and USTER therefore provide the necessary textile know-how and give insights into the world of yarns and fabrics.

Attractive expertise

Rieter offers seminar participants the opportunity to not only see the four different spinning technologies, but also to virtually experience them. The yarns spun from them show clear differences in their structure and the differences are also reflected in the fabric. These correlations will become clear to the participants as soon as the samples are touched and compared with one another.

Understanding quality data

When buying yarns, it is important to know and understand the determining quality data. An expert from USTER will give detailed information and help with their interpretation. As the leading manufacturer of textile testing devices, USTER has comprehensive knowledge and offers tools to create textile quality profiles.
