Abstract:

Fibre of dyed mélange yarn is becoming an emerging product in the field of textiles. The quality of mélange yarn is largely influenced by the types of blending methodologies. There exists hardly any reported work where the effect of blending methods on cotton mélange yarn quality has been studied. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of blending methodologies on the properties of cotton mélange spun yarn. Dyed and grey cotton fibre components were mixed at the blow room and draw frame stages separately to produce  mélange yarns with three different shade depths (%). Better yarn quality with respect to yarn evenness, imperfections, tenacity, elongation at break and hairiness index was achieved with the draw frame blending methodology as compared to the blow room blending methodology. The mélange yarn quality deteriorates with an increase in shade depth (%) for both  blending methodologies.
