Abstract:

This study investigates the effect of the blend ratio on recycled blended yarn quality characteristics. Ring-spun yarns of linear density of 23.6, 29.5 and 39.4 tex were produced from five blend proportions of recycled polyester and cotton (0:100, 33:67, 50:50, 67:33 and 100:0). Increasing the recycled polyester content increases the tenacity, elongation at break and hairiness and decreases unevenness, thin places, thick places and neps, while a decrease in linear density increases the tenacity, elongation at break, unevenness, thin places, thick places, neps and hairiness. Statistical analysis reflects that both the blend ratio and linear density have a significant difference on the tenacity, elongation at break, thin places, thick places, neps and hairiness. However, with reference to unevenness, a significant difference is reported only for linear density and not for the blend ratio. The ratio of recycled polyester has a significant influence on the overall quality of recycled polyester/cotton blended yarn. The blending of recycled polyester and cotton can be optimised to meet various end-use requirements.
