Effect of blending soyabean fiber with wool fiber on dimensional properties of fabrics

Author(s): Shalini Juneja and Suman Pant
Abstract:
Effect of blending soyabean fiber with wool fiber on dimensional properties of fabrics has been reported in this research paper. Soyabean fibre (S) has been blended with merino wool (M) in three different ratios, viz 80:20, 70:30 and 50:50 and yarns were prepared on ring spinning system. Woven fabric samples were prepared on simple handloom. Knitted fabric samples were prepared on flat bed hand knitting machine. Dimensional properties of fabrics were determined. Blending of soyabean with merino wool fiber has reduced thickness and weight of woven fabrics and thickness of knitted fabrics. Cloth cover and tightness factor of blended fabrics is little less than that of pure fabrics.
