The present study reveals a comparison of the physical properties of three sets of bamboo/cotton blended yarns of linear density 19.68, 14.76 and 11.81tex with those of 100% cotton yarn. Each set consisted of three yarns of fibre blend ratios 67:33, 50:50, and 33:67. The test results showed that for all the three sets of yarn, the properties of the 50:50 blended yarns were comparable with those of the 100% cotton yarn. In the case of the 19.68-tex yarn set, the 67:33 blended yarn showed properties similar to those of the 50:50 blended yarn. It was also observed that increasing the bamboo content led to a reduction in properties. Thus the quality characteristics of the blended yarn depend upon the bamboo content in the blend.

Abstract:

The present study reveals a comparison of the physical properties of three sets of bamboo/cotton blended yarns of linear density 19.68, 14.76 and 11.81tex with those of 100% cotton yarn. Each set consisted of three yarns of fibre blend ratios 67:33, 50:50, and 33:67. The test results showed that for all the three sets of yarn, the properties of the 50:50 blended yarns were comparable with those of the 100% cotton yarn. In the case of the 19.68-tex yarn set, the 67:33 blended yarn showed properties similar to those of the 50:50 blended yarn. It was also observed that increasing the bamboo content led to a reduction in properties. Thus the quality characteristics of the blended yarn depend upon the bamboo content in the blend.
