Dried Textured Yarn is a popular term for yarn that has been textured by a process called cross-linking. This process involves twisting and drawing the yarn. The length of the yarn depends on the type of lamination and cross-linking that has been done. Dried textured yarn is generally obtained when Polyester DTY is simultaneously drawn and twisted. Dried Textured Yarn can be in Bright or Semi Dull, depending on the type of fields of yarn where the lamination has been done.
This textured yarn can be used in a variety of threads for various purposes. Apart from being used to make tapestry, Dried Textured Yarn can also be used to make carpets. Some of the threads made of this yarn are available in varying shades and colors. Most of the threads made of Dried Textured Yarn are light in color and have a high sheen. They are usually used to make curtains, bedspreads, throw pillows, table cover and in cushion covers.
Mostly people use Dried Textured yarn to knit sweaters, mittens and hats. A knitted sweater made of partially oriented yarns can look really good and warm. People who are not so good at knitting can make their own sweaters with partially twisted Dried Textured yarns. The process of cross lamination of yarns can be carried out using either a heated knife or a heated gun. However, the former is quite time consuming and the latter is only a bit expensive.
In case of making home furnishings, especially bed covers and cushion covers, Poy fibers work very well. Poy is basically a form of yarn that has been partly twisted. It looks like a chenille and has a shiny finish. In case of knitting materials and other household items like table cloth, quilting fabrics and table covers, poy yarns are primarily used in order to give them a shiny finish.
Another textile fiber that is quite popular is polyester textured yarn. It is also known as partially twisted wool or polyester. Unlike polyester it does not lose its shape when it is washed. However, the other yarn types lose their shape when they are washed. A knitter who is interested in making materials like baby clothes, socks, scarves and shawls with this fiber will have to buy ready-to-wear skeins of polyester textured yarn at quite high costs.
The fiber that has gained popularity lately is the SD RYN Polyester yarn. This is basically a spun yarn that is made by the SD Yarn Company Limited from a variety of synthetic and natural fibers.
