Which yarn is better for knitting: Ring or Compact
A study on cotton yarn was done to answer the question mentioned above. It was done by Muhameet Akaydin of Pamukkale University, Turkey. The following are the conclusions from the study:
1. Compact fabrics absorb more dyes and thus have vivid colors than the ring fabrics.
2. They have higher abrasion resistance and lower pilling tendency than ring fabrics.
3. They show higher bursting strength than ring yarns.
