Fibre crimp

Crimp refers to waves, bends, twists or curls along the fibre length. It expressed as crimps per unit length. Some natural fibres are linear, others form two-dimensional or three-dimensional crimps. Crimped fibres tend to have higher elongation than linear fibres. See Fibre morphology overview and Fibre direction (fibre orientation).
