First you need to make a card marked with angles to measure your yarn against. Find a protractor or other device marked with angles, and a lined 3 x 5 inch index card. Cheap plastic protractors are found in the stationary/school supply section of most stores.

You can see on the card pictured here that the "0" degree line is straight up and down along one of the lines on the card. Mark the halfway point on that line. All your angles will be drawn from that spot.

Lay your protractor so the hole is over the center mark, and the "0" degree line is right on the line on your card. Use a pencil to make a short line at the 5 degree, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 angles along the edge of the protractor. More can be marked if desired, but I wouldn't bother unless you routinely spin very high twist yarns. If your card is too short for the size of the protractor, place the card on a piece of paper and, making sure the card doesn't move, mark the angles on the paper.

Finally, carefully draw straight lines from the center mark to the pencilled marks for each angle, and write in next to the line which angle is which. Repeat on the other end of the card so that you'll be able to easily measure twist angles for both 'Z' and 'S' twist.

Picture[2] illustrates measuring the twist angle of a singles yarn. I've anchored the yarn in a small slit at the top of the card, and I hold it straight, parallel to the lines on the card, with my finger. Don't pull it tight--just hold it under enough tension to keep the yarn reasonably straight. More tension than that will stretch the yarn, making the angles measure more shallow than they really are.

If the yarn is quite fine, or all one color, it helps to have a magnifying device of some sort handy. You can see a device to the right of the card, variously called a pick glass, linen tester, or map reader. It provides 10 times magnification. I can easily pick it up and place it on the yarn to see it more accurately.

To determine the approximate twist angle of this piece of yarn, look at the slant of the individual fibers--readily visible in this section. Whatever angled line on the card most closely matches the slant of the fibers in the yarn is that yarn's twist angle.

More than likely, different sections of yarn will have slightly different twist angles. The more smoothly spun the yarn, the more accurate this method of measuring twist will be. That's one reason why I only mark every 5 degrees on my card--not being a machine, my yarn will never be perfectly even. More accurate measurements would be possible, but not really tell me anything important about my yarn.

If you keep the card (and magnifying glass) next to your wheel, you can stop spinning at any moment and easily check the twist angle of your yarn. Then you can adjust your spinning as much or as little as needed to keep the yarn spun like you want it. For low-twist yarns you may need a twist angle of around 10 degrees. For yarns to be plied into socks, you might need a twist angle of 20 degrees. Whatever you decide is good for your project, the card will help you keep on track.

            European researchers have developed a smart fabric that can monitor muscular overload and help prevent repetitive strain injury, or RSI. But that is just the beginning. The team is also exploring a pregnancy belt to monitor baby’s heartbeat, clothing to help coach hockey, and shirts that monitor muscle fatigue during training.

            Smart fabrics promise to revolutionise clothing by incorporating sensors into cloth for health, lifestyle and business applications. In the long term, they could consist of circuits and sensors that provide all of the typical electronics we carry around today, like mobile phones and PDAs.Current, first-generation applications are far more modest, and pioneering medical smart fabrics are used to monitor vital signs like heart rate and temperature. But two crucial hurdles
– unobtrusiveness and reliability – impede widespread adoption of such clever clothes. Now one European research team has developed groundbreaking medical-sensing smart fabrics, and its work could lead to pregnancy monitoring belts, sports clothing that provides training tips, a wearable physical game controller, and a vest that helps to prevent repetitive strain injury. The Context project initially sought to develop an RSI vest to tackle a serious work safety issue. Repetitive actions can, over time, lead to permanent injury and the problem costs billions of euros a year. It affects over 40 million workers across the continent and is responsible for 50 percent of all work-related ill-health.

December 2010, Loughborough, UK – Loughborough University is to lead a three-year collaborative project with neighbouring Nottingham Trent University to develop a new type of fabric based antenna technology that can overcome problems currently encountered by the military, search and rescue teams and the emergency services.

The groundbreaking project aims to produce a fabric antenna and associated electronics, which could be integrated into a wearer’s uniform. Traditional monopole antennae are said to be bulky, heavy and prone to breaking and they can also attract unwanted attention during covert and security operations. The researchers say that in contrast, the new design will be small, lightweight, flexible and weather resistant.

Students at the London College of Fashion, University College Falmouth and theUniversity of Huddersfield created their new designs from excess stocks of the revolutionary suit. The Speedo LZR Racer was rendered obsolete following a change in rules set out by the governing body of the sport of swimming FINA (Federation Internationale de Natation) which prevented the use of body suits in competitive swimming.
The creations include several examples drawing on the suit’s heritage in the pool, including a patchwork watershort using the LZR Racer and other Speedo watershorts sourced on auction websites by Man Kit Au Yeung from London College of Fashion, and an ‘Afterlife’ creation featuring a cape inspired by superheroes and aimed at the high-end fashion market by Eva Hiu Wa Lai also from London College of Fashion.
Other designs saw the Speedo LZR Racer reworked for other uses, with University College Falmouth student Owen Bennett creating a buoyancy aid life jacket, and Adriana Margarita Ruiz, a London College of Fashion student, creating a Speedo LZR Racer inspired technical jacket. President of Speedo, David Robinson, said: “This project has captured the technology and originality of the Speedo LZR Racer and combined it with unique cutting edge fashion. It is inspiring to see the creative and innovative approach the students have taken to produce their products. Creativity and innovation is valued highly at Speedo and we are pleased to see this quality of talent emerging from the universities that have taken part. Speedo is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and as such it is good to see the Speedo LZR Racer live on in these innovative designs.” The collaboration with students is part of a wider project to explore new ways of utilising excess stock and a more responsible solution than sending the obsolete product to landfill; Speedo opted to write a new chapter in the history of the Speedo LZR Racer suit by providing the suits to a series of artistic and creative groups and institutions to use in a series of collaborative projects, ensuring that the suit will continue to make waves.
This latest project follows the preview of the ‘From Somewhere with Speedo’ collaboration at London Fashion Week in September 2010. Made from unsold Speedo stock the collection created by award winning sustainable fashion designers ‘From Somewhere’ is due to launch in early 2011. The first art and design project, The ‘S_Pavilion’, was displayed at Chelsea College’s Degree Show and the London Architectural Festival in July and was made from 200 Speedo LZR Racer suits shaped around Forest Stewardship Council certified timber.
