The interplanar spacing d{hkl} versus sin2 ψ distributions were measured for the 211, 310, 220 and 200 reflections from severely cold-drawn 0.7% C steel wire with a diameter of 0.25 mm. From the shape of the curves it was concluded that, as well as a 110 fibre texture and elastic anisotropy, plastic anisotropy of the ferrite crystals may be an important cause of the non-linearity in d{hkl} versus sin2 ψ. The shape of the curves, and therefore the residual state of stress of the wire, is influenced by the drawing parameters, i.e. the drawing die cone angle and the number of stages.
