A research study on the problems encountered during the production of wool-blend fabrics for ladies' wear on the short staple system is presented. Two grades (62's and 80's) of 50.8-mm (maximum fibre length, 2 inches) cut-top wool were intimately mixed with cotton and with polyester fibres at varying blend levels. Thirteen yarns were ring-spun and standard crepe fabrics were woven from each yarn. Solutions to production problems and simple finishing routines that will produce satisfactory laundering performance of these fabrics are suggested. The resultant fabric properties are described.
