Abstract: Polypropylene staple fibres were mixed with cotton in different proportions for producing ring-spun yarns and the yarns so produced were converted into both woven and knitted fabrics. Various fabric properties including low-stress mechanical properties and hand values were determined on Kawabata fabric evaluation system. Mixing of polypropylene resulted in lowering of total hand value and improvement in total appearance value. Polypropylene-cotton knitted fabrics offer better durability performance.
