Abstract: The effect of loom sophistication and blend composition (Terene/wool/viscose) on fabric properties, such as air permeability, appearance, smoothness, fullness, finge, flexural rigidity, crease recovery, abrasion resistance, and tensile strength, was studied. Eight fabric samples were prepared by using 2/2 twill and by varying the blend composition of weft (Terene/wool/viscose) on Sulzer and Saurer looms. There was no significant difference in the properties of fabrics produced on the two looms except for smoothness, appearance, fullness and finge, which were found to be better in fabrics produced on a Sulzer loom. With increase in wool component in the yarn, flexural rigidity and abrasion resistance decreased, whereas air permeability, crease recovery and tensile strength increased.
