What is Cloth Cover Factor?
|Cover Factor Formula|
There are two cover factors for woven fabric:
- Warp cover factor
- Weft cover factor
In cotton system cloth cover in particular direction (warp cover factor or weft cover factor) is calculated by taking the ration of threads per inch and square root of the yarn count (cotton count/English count).
What is concept of Similar Cloths?
- Yarn Count
- Twist in Yarn
- Thread Density (EPI, PPI)
- Weave etc.
When two fabric samples are having same cover factor but they differ in above mentioned points then they are called as similar cloths.
Factional Cover & Derivation of Cover Factor
Fractional cover may be defined as the fraction of the total fabric area that is ‘covered’ by the component yarns.
