- Grin-Through — This defect is an incomplete covering of the core of spandex and is caused by improper positioning of the core with respect to roving.
- Short core voids — This defect comes in short sections (25 to 75 mm) of yarns with no stretch because the core broke after the yarn was spun. This may happen due to poor positioning of spandex yarn to roving, over-drafting of core yarn (use recommended drafts), poor mechanical condition of rings, excessive traveller speed, and too heavy traveller
- Long core voids — It is long section of yarn with core missing. This defect may arise due to nicked or rough guide surfaces, back drafting of spandex on the tube resulting from insufficient feed-roll contact, over drafting of core yarn and mishandling of spandex supply tubes.
