Abstract: The spinning of Nigerian kapok fibre and its blend with cotton fibre has been studied. It is observed that the spinning of 100% kapok fibres beyond lap formation stage is not possible, while the spinning of kapok fibre blended with at least 50% cotton fibre is largely successful. The yarn regularity and tenacity decrease while the yarn extensibility increases with the increase in kapok content in the blend. The total cost of production of the yarns decreases significantly as the kapok content in the blend increases.
