Author(s):
Iramma V Goudar and Dr. Sadhana D Kulloli
Abstract:
Flax fibre was blended with cotton in three proportions viz., 40:60, 30:70 and 20:80 on ring frame to obtain blended yarns. Cent percent flax, cotton were also spun for comparison. The blended yarns were assessed for yarn count, twist, yarn evenness, hairiness percentage and strength of the yarn. The results indicated that, the cent per cent cotton fibre could be spun to highest count compared to pure flax and other blended yarn. The 30:70and 20:80 flax /cotton blended yarn showed better yarn properties compared to 40:60 flax /cotton blended yarn. The strength was found highest in cent percent cotton and flax yarn & lowest in hairiness percentage compared to blended yarns.
