NameDescription
Micronaire value of cotton (Micrograms per inch)Average weight of 1 inch of fibre in Micrograms (1/1000,000 gms)
Denier (for man-made fibres)Weight in gms per 9000 metres of fibre
Micron  (micro-metre)  (μm) (fibre diameter) (normally for Wool)0.001 mm
Denier0.354  x Micronaire value
Micronaire Value2.824 x Denier
Fibre diameter ( μ ) 11.3 x √ ( dtex / sp.gr) =  11.9 x √ (den / sp.gr)
Tenacity values: Kg / mm29 x (g/den) x Sp.gr. = RKM value x Sp.gr. = (g/tex) x Sp.gr.
