Abstract: A methodology has been proposed for establishing an empirical relationship between the parameters, such as per cent removal of pectic substances and waxes, to determine the treatment time in the enzymatic scouring of different cotton fibres for achieving expected absorbency. It is observed that five different varieties of cotton fibres considered in the study behave alike for a given treatment time with respect to removal of pectic substances and waxes during enzymatic scouring. The methodology suggested in this study would help the processors to develop relationships for the conditions used by them in enzymatic scouring to find out the treatment time required to achieve the expected absorbency in any chosen cotton fibre and its blend as long as the conditions used for the purpose are not changed.
