Abstract:

Soybean Protein Fibres (SPF) are man-made fibres manufactured from the proteins contained in soybeans. They are biodegradable fibres derived from renewable sources, friendly for people and the environment. Within the framework of the work presented, selected utility properties of fabrics containing SPFs were investigated. The scope of the investigation included determination of mechanical properties, drapeability, water-vapour permeability and liquid moisture transport. The investigations carried out allowed to evaluate the utility value of fabrics made with the use of SPFs and to compare the fabric 100% made of SPFs with ones with weft yarns other than from SPFs. The research showed that fabrics with SPFs are suitable for clothing products, which may be a very good alternative to the currently available clothing made from fabrics containing standard natural and chemical fibres.
