Assessment of Physical Properties of Cotton with Ahimsa and Conventional Silk Union Fabrics

Neelam Sharma [3] | Dr. Minakshi Jain | Dr. Radha Kashyap


Abstract: Silk fiber is the most beautiful natural fiber known as the Queen of Textiles. Ahimsa silk is an eco-friendly, sustainable and non-violent process of the production. Cotton is a versatile fabric full of comfort properties. Hand spun and hand woven cotton fabric is another model of sustainable fabrics. Therefore, union fabrics in different ratios were prepared from Khadi cotton and ahimsa silk yarns (Eri Silk) and conventional Silk yarns (Muga Silk and tussar silk). Assessment of physical properties of Khadi cotton with Ahimsa silk and Conventional Silk union fabrics has been accomplished in this research. Objective of the study was to prepare union fabrics in three different ratios Eri*Cotton 3367, Eri*Cotton 5050 and Eri*Cotton 6733 and assessment of its physical properties. These fabrics were tested in the wool Research Association for their crease resistance (resilience), pilling, shrinkage, tearing strength, moisture regain (absorbency) and drapability etc. The results indicate that Khadi cotton-ahimsa silk union fabrics are compatible to the other Khadi cotton- conventional silk union fabrics in their physical and comfort properties, so can be used for various garment construction.
