Abstract

Two grades (62's and 80's) of 50.8 mm (maximum fiber length, 2 inches) cut-top wool were intimately mixed with cotton and with polyester fibers at varying blend levels. Subsequently, 13 yarns (36.9 tex, 16/1 Nc) were ring-spun using the short- staple system of mechanical processing and standard crepe fabrics were manufactured from each. Some production problems are highlighted together with their solutions. Simple finishing routines and resulting fabric properties are described.
