Summary This paper examines the use of pressurized steam for wrapping and setting the yarn hairs concurrently via a new steam-jet process during winding. Yarn torque can also be stabilized as an added advantage. The results obtained with two batches of pure wool yarns suggest that there is potential to achieve yarn hairiness reduction of up to 60 % with minimum deterioration in hairiness even after subsequent rewinding.
