Designation: D 2260 03

Standard Tables of

Conversion Factors and Equivalent Yarn Numbers Measured


in Various Numbering Systems1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 2260; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

1. Scope
1.1 These tables include (1) a series of conversion factors
required to convert the number of a yarn measured in a specific
system to the equivalent number measured in various other
systems (see Table 1), and (2) specific equivalent numbers for
yarns measured in various systems (see Table 2).
1.2 The content is basically consistent with recommendations of the International Organization for Standardization
(ISO) Standard 2947.

3. Terminology
3.1 Refer to Terminology D 4849 for definition of the
following ters used in this standard: American graincount;
cotton count; cut, in asbestos and glass yarns, cut, in wool
yarns; denier; direct yarn numbering systems; grain, in yarn
spinning; grain, in measuring mass; indirect yarn numbering
system; linear density; lea, in linen yarns; metric count; run, in
the american woolen system; tex; worsted count; yarn number;
and yarn numbering system.
3.2 Refer to Terminology D 123 for definitions of other
terms used in this standard.

4. Conversion Factors for Equivalent Yarn Numbers


4.1 Calculate any equivalent value using the appropriate
factor listed in Table 1.
5. Use of Previously Calculated Equivalent Yarn
Numbers
5.1 For a specific number in a stated system, read the
equivalent in the various other systems from Table 2.
5.2 With a few exceptions, fractional traditional indirect
counts have been omitted from Table 2; the rounded tex system
values for most fractional traditional indirect counts can be
obtained by interpolation.
6. Implementation of the Tex Yarn Numbering System
6.1 In Table 2, to encourage the implementation of the tex
system in the United States, rounded tex values were chosen to
accommodate as many yarn numbers as possible for the
traditional yarn numbering systems without encroaching on
established tolerances. In addition to the rounded tex system
values, the decitex (dtex) equivalents have been included
because they can be used throughout most of the count range
without employing decimal fractions. The choice of unit is
entirely a matter to be determined by each sector of the trade;
decitex, for example, is particularly suitable for fine yarns
(whether spun or filament) and tex for medium and coarse
yarns.

A
The conversion factors are based on the following relationships given in Metric Practice SI 10: 1 yard = 0.9144 m, exactly, and 1 lb (avoirdupois) = 0.453 592 37 kg,
exactly. The conversion factors in Table 1 containing fewer than six significant digits are exact values.
B
Multiples and submultiples of this basic unit may be used as a convenience to avoid large numbers or decimal fractions. For example, decitex (dtex) or tex 3 10 is
suitable for fine yarns and fibers; millitex (mtex) or tex 3 1000 is suitable for fibers; while kilotex (ktex) or tex/1000 is often used for ropes, cords, rovings, tops, and slivers.
Examples of Table 1 use:
1) The English worsted count equivalent to a cotton count of 10 is 1.5 times 10, or 15 English worsted count.
2) The cotton count equivalent to 30 tex is 590.54 divided by 30, or 19.7 cotton count.

7. Derivation of Data in Table 2


7.1 Tables 1 and 2 are based on the following exact
equivalents:
7.1.1 1 yd = 0.9144 m.
7.1.2 1 lb = 453.592 37 g.
7.1.3 1 lb = 7000 grains.
7.2 The following conversion factors have been computed
where y = yards per pound.
7.2.1 Woolen run (wr) = y/1600.
7.2.2 cotton count (cc) = y/840.
7.2.3 denier (den) = 4 464 492/y.
7.2.4 Worsted count (wc) = y/560.
7.2.5 American grain count per 120 yd (gr) = 840 000/y.
7.2.6 linen lea (lea) = y/300.
7.2.7 metric count (mc) = y/496.055.
7.2.8 tex (tex) = 496 055/y.

7.2.9 For the woolen system, use the column and row
headed linen lea.
7.3 The data in Table 2 was derived using the National
Institute of Standards and Technology values in the NIST
Circular M121, January, 1936. Based on current values, when
calculating yards per pound for a specified denier, the table will
understate the value by 12 yd out of 4.5 million yd or 11 m out
of 4.1 million m. When calculating yards per pound for a
specified tex value, the table will understate the value by 5 yd
out of 0.5 million yd or 4.6 m out of 0.46 million m. Therefore,
those who need more precise data for denier and tex should
recalculate the data needed using the current values in Table 1.

The tabulated values for yards per pound are exact only for the corresponding rounded tex values.
The values of the deviations are the rounded decitex values minus the exact decitex values, expressed as a percentage of the rounded decitex value.
C
Values finer than 3.000 tex apply mostly to filament yarn, therefore, yarn count equivalents are omitted.
B
