**Tex:**

**It is generally used to express the fineness of continuous filament yarn. It is the direct system of yarn count determination.**

**. When the tex of a yarn increases, the yarn becomes coarser. It is very easy to calculate the Tex of a yarn. First of all measure a length of 1000 meters from yarn package, then find out its weight with the help of weighing scale. The weight of this length in grams will be the Tex of a yarn.**

*"The weight in grams of 1000 meters of yarn is called tex of a yarn"*
If you have a short length of the yarn, you need to measure the yarn length and to find its weight in grams. Now put both values in the below-given formula.

Some other versions of Tex system are given below:

**DECI TEX:**

**Weight in grams of 10000 Metres of yarn is called deci-tex of yarn.**

**MILLI-TEX:**Weight in milligrams of 1000 meters of yarn is called millitex of yarn.

**KILOTEX:**

**Weight in a kilogram of 1000 meters of yarn is called kilotex of a yarn.**
