Abstract: The effect of hydrogen peroxide bleaching on pineapple leaf fibre (PALF) and its yarn was investigated. Bleaching of PALF with H2O2 improved its fineness by 5-6% but reduced the tensile strength by 40-45%. Bleached PALF when spun into yarn produced a more uniform, more extensible but lower strength yarn than the control raw PALF yarn. Raw PALF yarn on bleaching showed high extension, low strength and more irregularity than the control raw yarn. The pliability of PALF yarn improved after bleaching in fibre as well as yarn state.
