Abstract: The appearance and handle of the jute-cotton union fabric have been significantly improved by treatment with a commercial enzyme preparation, Biocellulase ZK. The treatment leads to the removal of surface hairs from the fabric and induces improvement in soft feeling. The handle of the fabric is improved due to increased drapability and compressibility and reduced stiffness and rigidity. The principal parameters affecting the treatment are concentration of enzyme and mechanical friction. Strength loss of fabric after the treatment is accompanied with a loss in fabric weight and is acceptable if it is kept within a controlled limit.
