Abstract: The physical and mechanical properties of the jute/polypropylene blended fabrics are governed by the constituent fibres, texturing and raising treatment. Fabric tenacity, breaking extension, compression, compliance ratio and abrasion resistance increase but compressional recovery and flexural rigidity decrease with increase in polypropylene in weft yarn. On texturing, the fabric tenacity, abrasion resistance, flexural rigidity and compressional recovery decrease although compression, compliance ratio and breaking extension increase. On raising, a similar phenomenon as above is observed except in case of flexural regidity. Textured raised samples possess higher thermal resistivity as compared to untextured raised samples with maximum value for 60:40 PP/Jute blended weft yarn fabrics. It appears that 60% polypropylene in weft yarn may result into most suitable fabric for semi-apparels.
