Introduction:
To calculate the count in textile need to know about count used in textile industry.

Definition

of

count:

Count is numerical expressions which express or indicate the coarseness or fineness of yarn used
in
textile.
According to Textile Institute, Count is a number indicating the mass per unit length or the
length per unit mass of yarn.
So it has seen that Count has the two systems to indicate coarseness/fineness:1. Indirect system
2. Direct system

Direct

System:

In direct system the count is used for the measurement of weight per unit length of yarn where
length
is
considered
as
constant.
Here

whenever

count

increases,

fineness

decreases.

(count

In direct system of count commonly used some units of measurement are:1. Tex (1 Tex = 1g/ 1000m)

fineness)

2. Grain (1 Grain = 1g/ 10,000m)

3. Denier (1 Denier = 1g/ 9000m)

Indirect

System:

In indirect system of measuring count t is used for the measurement of length per unit weight of
yarn
where
weight
is
considered
to
be
constant.
When

count

increases,

fineness

increases.

(count

fineness)

In indirect system of count there are commonly used some subsystems of indirect system are:1. English System (1 Ne = 1 Hank/ lb)
2. Metric System (1 Nm = 1 Km/ kg)
For

cotton

yarn,

length

of

Hank

840

yards.

Whenever the type of count is not mentioned with the count, it is understood that is the English
count cause this count is widely used and known as English cotton count.
Now lets see the count conversion table which helps to calculate the count from any system of
count.

Count Conversion Table

Conversion

example:

Example 1: If the metric count is given 50 then what will be the English cotton count?
Solution:
We
Where,

know
English

that,
cotton

Ne=0.5905
count
is

X
expressed

Nm
as

Ne

And
So
Ans.

Metric
English
count

count
will

as
Ne=0.5905
Ne

be

30

Nm
X

50=30

Example 2: If the English cotton count is 30 then what will be the Tex count?
Solution:
Rom
the
count
Tex
count
Where,
Ne=30,
so
Ans.19.6

conversion
Tex

table
=
count
Tex

we
will

know
that,
590.5/Ne
be=590.5/30=19.6

From the count conversion tool we can convert each of the count either direct or indirect from
one to another count.
