Yarn Count Range for Different GSM

Selection of yarn count is very important task for production manager of knitting. Knitted fabric is made with the help of yarn loops. Yarn of different counts is used to produce different GSM fabric. Yarn count and GSM is directly related. If yarn count is lower than higher GSM and vice versa.

From manager of the factory we have collected data (Table A, B, C) only relation between GSM & count. And from the m/c we have practically collected some data (Table no. D, E, F) on relation between GSM, SL (Stitch length) & Count. These are given below.
