In order to produce elastomeric yarns, elastomeric staple fibers must be fabricated first. For this reason, it was to try utilizing several kind of poly (ether ester) with different structures to obtain staple fibers with different elasticity by using the melt spinning. It was found experimentally that the elasticity of poly (ether ester) staple fibers was too high to be processed by ring spinning machine. Only in the case where poly (ether ester) and poly (butylene terephthalate) were blended and then processed by melt spinning, the obtained fibers with low elasticity could be processed normally to make elastomeric yarns with ring spinning machine. It was shown that the elastomeric yarn could be fabricated successfully by the ring spinning technology.
