What is "Torque" - Definition & Explanation

A force which tends to cause rotation, usually due to twist having been inserted into a yarn or removed from a yarn (see twist liveliness).
A term applied to a type of nylon yarn which has been through processing to introduce a high level of twist. This creates a yarn with some recovery but without "bulk" associated with texturised yarns. A style made from these yarns is sometimes called Volie. The fabrics made from Torque yarns have excellent sheerness for a given denier and bright surface appearance. However the overall cling properties in wear are limited and multiple sizes are needed to get a good fit.
