 In this paper, characterizing of tensile behavior of dry jute yarn and impregnated jute yarn is proposed.  The results from dry yarn tensile tests showed the presence of 4 zones on the load-displacement curve and those of impregnated yarn tensile tests showed the presence of only one linear zone. Average Young’s modulus, average tenacity and average breaking stress of impregnated yarn are superior to those of dry yarn while average breaking strain of impregnated yarn is lower than that of dry yarn. Morphologies of tested yarns where discussed to elucidate damage mechanisms.
