Abstract:

The paper presents the results of research concerning the properties of cottonised flax/cotton rotor blended yarns and fabrics for upholstery applications. A double carding technology was developed for producing rotor spun yarns of 29.5 tex, 59 tex, and 100 tex linear density from 30/70 and 50/50 cottonised flax/cotton blends. For comparison purposes, allcotton yarns of similar linear densities were spun using standard mill procedures and practices. The 30/70 cottonised flax/cotton rotor blended yarns were woven into three variants of fabrics that were tested for tensile and tear strength in both the warp and weft directions. The woven fabrics were evaluated concerning their suitability for upholstery applications.
