|Title:||Properties of ring-spun yarns made from cotton and regenerated bamboo fibres|
Mondal, Achintya Kumar
|Abstract:||The properties of ring-spun yarns made from cotton and regenerated bamboo cellulosic fibres and their blends have been studied. Three blend proportions (100% cotton, 50:50 cotton-bamboo and 100% bamboo) have been used to produce yarns of three different counts (20s, 25s and 30s) and these yarns are then tested for their diameter, tensile, evenness and hairiness related properties. It is found that the yarn diameter reduces as the proportion of bamboo fibre increases. The yarn tenacity first reduces and then increases but the elongation increases continuously as the proportion of bamboo fibre increases. The yarn unevenness is found to be maximum for 50:50 cotton-bamboo yarns. The 100% cotton and 100% bamboo yarns are having comparable unevenness except for 30s count. Hairiness of yarn in different length classes and mean hair length reduce continuously as the percentage of bamboo fibre increases. However, for the same blend proportion, mean hair length is found to be independent on the yarn count.|
