Lunometer Automatic Fabric Density Counters
The Lunometer ® is a transparent vinyl plate containing a high precision sequence of lines corresponding numbered graduations.
When placed over woven or knitted material, it produces a measurement pattern that enables the Lunometer® to provide an accurate thread count; the number of warp and filling yarns in a square inch or centimeter of fabric.
Using available daylight and/or artificial light, a thread count is quickly made by moving the Lunometer® over the fabric until the measurement pattern is seen. At the point where the waves converge, a circular or oval shaped image appears, as in the illustration, indicating the thread count.
