|Abstract:||Effect of blending camel kid hair with merino wool on performance of resultant yarn and fabric has been studied. Camel hair (CH) has been blended with merino wool (M) in three different ratios, viz. 25:75, 75:25 and 50:50 on khadi hand spinning system. Knitted fabric samples are then prepared on circular hand knitting machine. Properties of yarn and knitted fabric are also evaluated. It is found that the blending of merino wool with camel hair improves fineness and strength of yarn. Performance of CH75:M25 knitted fabric is found better in terms of strength and warmth, whereas CH25:M75 fabric shows higher abrasion resistance and better knitting performance and hand.|
