Share:

Description

This data set gives the number of warp breaks per loom, where a loom corresponds to a fixed length of yarn.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 54 observations on 3 variables.

[,1] breaks numeric The number of breaks
[,2] wool factor The type of wool (A or B)
[,3] tension factor The level of tension (L, M, H)

There are measurements on 9 looms for each of the six types of warp (AL, AM, AH, BL, BM, BH).
