The article focuses on a new approach for characterization and evaluation of lateral yarn deformation. A small review
about theoretical description and measurement possibilities will be introduced. The evaluation of yarn compression
will be done by three innovative methods (lateral deformation of yarn between two parallel plates, simulation of
binding point of fabric, cross-sectional analysis of real fabric). The analysis of yarn deformation will be carried out
for a set of samples in combination of fiber material, yarn count and given fabric structure.
