Abstract

The demand of blended yarn has been increasing gradually due to some of its distinctive properties. It is a challenging task for textile technologists to ensure the appropriate blend composition and blending ratio for the developments of the spinning industry. We should reduce dependency from natural fiber as their properties are not adequate in advancing textile industry and so they are used together in blends with synthetic fibers to compensate their limitations. The aim of this research work was to study the comparative properties of cotton/viscose and cotton/modal blended yarn. Cotton was blended with viscose and modal fibers separately in 50/50 ratio. Blending was carried out at draw frame, and finally 31/1Ne blended yarns were produced. The yarn properties such as unevenness, imperfection, hairiness, single yarn strength (cN/tex) and bundle yarn strength (CSP) were tested, and their comparative results were analyzed. Cotton/modal 50/50 blended yarn showed significantly better properties than the cotton/viscose 50/50 blended yarn.
