Abstract


This research was carried out at Cotton Research Institute of Agriculture Research Center, Giza, Egypt, to study the impact of different spinning systems and different bamboo + cotton blends of the properties on the blended yarn. A commercial cultivar, Giza 86 (a long- staple variety), and bamboo fiber were used in the experiment. Two spinning systems, i.e., ring and compact spinning were employed to produce 40'S carded yarns. The results obtained indicate that a compact spun bamboo + cotton yarn blended at a ratio of 67:33 yielded the highest mean values for the key yarn properties. The strongest fibers produced the best yarn quality.
