Abstract:

This study focussed on the investigation of the properties of knitted fabrics produced from blended yarns made of different proportions of modal (M) and cotton (C) fibres. For this purpose, single jersey knitted fabric samples were produced from modal and modal-cotton blended yarns consisting of three different blend ratios of MC fibres (M:C – 100:0, 70:30 & 50:50) in three different loop lengths from both ring and compact yarns. Eighteen samples were obtained to observe the effect of the MC blend ratio, type of yarn and loop length on the bursting strength and air-permeability of single jersey knitted fabrics. ANOVA was performed at a 95% significance level to find the influence of the blend ratio on the test results. The results show that the modal cotton blend ratio influenced the bursting strength and air-permeability of knitted fabric significantly. It is also observed that the type of yarn and loop length show a significant impact on the fabric quality parameters measured.
