Abstract: Silk wrapped polyester core yarns produced on an improved pedal spinning wheel have been compared with yarns spun from 100% silk waste. The fabrics made from both normal spun and core-spun yarns have also been evaluated for various properties. It is observed that the fabrics produced from core yarns as weft are stronger and more durable than those made from normal spun yarn as weft. The core-spun yarn fabrics show superior dyeing and fastness properties, better cover and better abrasion resistance, and are more suitable for furnishing and upholstery fabrics.
