Balanced Twist

BALANCED TWIST
The twist is assumed to be balanced in a two-fold yarn when half as many turns per inch have been inserted in the doubling process, as were previously inserted in the opposite direction in each single thread. Theoretically, each turn of reverse twist in the doubling takes a turn out of the single twist, and in twisting together two single threads which contain, say, 20 turns per inch, the twist will be balanced when 10 turns of reverse T. have been made. It is not usual to obtain balanced T. in a two-fold yam, the number of twists in which more nearly approaches the number in the single threads, and, in this condition, very little twist is left in the single threads. (W. Watson.)
