# System of Yarn Count Conversions

Conversion of Count System:
We can convert the value of count from one to other systems by following only some formulas. There are 4 systems for yarn count conversions from one system to another system.

### System of Yarn Count Conversions:

1. Conversion from direct to direct
2. Conversion from indirect to indirect
3. Conversion from direct to indirect &amp;
4. Conversion from indirect to direct

There are two formulas to convert the yarn count as given below:

1. Unknown count = Multiplying converting factor X Given the count
2. Unknown count = Constant / Given count

Here the first one is used for the first two groups of conversion (direct to direct & indirect to indirect) and the second one is for the last two groups including direct to indirect & indirect to direct.

Before reading this conversion system you should read the following articles, as a result, you can understand easily.

The table of converting factor and the count constant is given below:

Direct to Direct:

 Known yarn count in Multiplying converting factor for the unknown count Tex Denier Tex ——- 9 Denier 0.1111 —— Jute count 34.45 310

Example:

Denier of unknown count = Tex (known count)  X  9
Tex of unknown count = 0.1111  X  Den or Jute count

Indirect to Indirect:

 Known yarn count in Multiplying converting factor for the unknown count Metric (Nm) Worsted Cotton (Ne) 17 1.5

Example:

Metric Count = 17 X Known cotton or worsted count
Worsted Count = 1.5 X Known cotton or Metric count

#### Indirect to Indirect & Direct to Direct:

 Known yarn count in Constant Tex Denier Cotton 590.5 5315 Metric 1000 9000

Example:

Metric = 9000 /Known Den count
Denier = 5315 /Known Ne

If we see the yarn conversion measurement system at a glance then the concept will be clear about the conversion of yarn count.

Yarn Count Conversion formula:

• Denier = 9 X Tex
• Ne X Denier = 0.5315
• Metric X Tex = 1000
• Tex X Ne = 590.5
• Ne = Metric X 0.5905
• Metric X Denier = 9000
• Tex = 34.45 X lb/ spyndle
