This investigation was carried out at Plant Production Department, Faculty of Agriculture (Saba Basha), Alexandria University, Egypt to study the effect of cotton genotypes and twist multiplier on yarn properties of commercial cultivar, Giza 90 and  new  hybrid  namely: H (G.83(G.75x5844) G80) as long staple (LS) were used. The two twist multiplier i.e. (3.6 and 4 T.M.) and the four yarn counts (24, 30, 36 and 40 Ne) on the same spinning systems (ring spinning) were used. The obtained results indicated that the long staple cotton new hybrid namely: H (G.83(G.75x5844) G80) and twist multiplier (4) recorded the highest mean values of the most importance of yarn properties. The strongest, longest and finest cottons produced the best yarn quality and were capable of acceptable spinning performance, in addition to the priorities. Yarn manufacturers are asking for higher fiber strength.
