What is "Cover Factor (Woven Fabric)" - Definition & Explanation
A number, derived from the number of warp (or weft) threads per unit length and the linear density of the yarns, that indicates the extent to which the area of a woven fabric is covered by the warp (or weft) yarns.


a) A woven fabric has, therefore, two cover factors, i.e. the warp cover factor and the weft cover factor.

b) In the tex system (q.v.) the cover factor is calculated by the expression: "number of threads per centimetre x 1 divided by the square root of the tex."
