This paper presents some predicting formulas of yarn diameter and contraction of ring spun yarns. The study concerned the influence of twist multiplier, yarn count and bulk density. Experiments carried out on different cotton yarns to justify the results of the theoretical analysis. The results obtained with these empirical formulas agree satisfactorily with the actual data.
