Abstract: A new technology based on the liquid support system is introduced for fabricating continuous twisted nanofibrous yarn. In this novel technique, the electrospun yarn was collected from the top of the water vortex such that it can be twisted simultaneously during yarn production. Our study demonstrated the feasibility of the technique for producing continuous twisted yarn from well aligned nanofibers. It is shown that the system can be modified to have different yarn counts with various twists. Further, significant improvement can be seen in the strength and strain when nanofibrous yarn is twisted compared to non-twisted yarn. © 2010 Society of Plastics Engineers.
