TEXTILE CALCULATIONS AND THE STRUCTURE OF FABRICS. PREFACE The great diversity which exists of the systems of indicating the weights, or as they are termed the counts of yarn, of what are known as the sett systems, and generally of the modes of calculating yarns and fabrics, have made this one of the most difficult subjects with which the manufacturer has had to deal. There can be no doubt but it would be beneficial to the trade generally if some fixed and universal system could be adopted. Looked at from a common sense point of view, there does not seem to be any insuperable difficulties in the way of this being done yet, there is no doubt that any one system would meet with strong opposition from many quarters though, why such opposition should be offered, is not easy to explain. The object of this treatise has been to formulate some of the rules, and to endeavour to lay down some system. it is not complete but it is hoped that it may assist those engaged in the manufacture of Textile Fabrics. This book was originally published in 1884. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
