Abstract: Improved Gossypium arboreum and conventionally grown medium staple G. hirsutum cotton strains with similar fibre quality traits have been processed simultaneously to produce coarse and medium count carded yarn. The prepared yarn samples have been analysed for structural, unevenness, physico-mechanical and related traits. The most promising improved G. arboreum cotton (PA-255) along with the conventional G. hirsutum cotton (LRA-5166) have been processed to produce 30/2 denim fabric (shirting). The fabrics produced are than analysed for processing efficiency (in terms of dye uptake) and comfort properties. The analysis of data shows that the overall performance of improved G. arboreum cotton is at par with that of the conventional medium staple G. hirsutum cotton with respect to the yarn as well as fabrics quality. However, the improved G. arboreum cotton demonstrates significantly better results for yarn imperfections (especially neps) and processing efficiency.
