Fiber Migration

In ring spinning the outer fiber are in greater tension as they follow a longer path. Whereas the fibers which stay at center follow a straight path and remains at lower tension. The outer fiber tends to move towards the center of the low tension zone and the center fiber, try to move outside. This displacement of fibers during spinning is called Fiber Migration.

According to the Textile Institute the change in distance of a fiber or filament yarn. The axis of a yarn during production is called Fiber Migration.
Factors that influence Fiber Migration:
  1. Staple length of the fiber.
  2. Tension.
  3. Mode of spinning.
  4. Form of ribbon in ring frame.
