Analysis of the Properties of Plain Woven Fabrics Produced from Flax/Cotton Blend

Lawal A.S. | Bawa I. | Nkeonye P.O.


Abstract: Blend yarns spun from different blend ratio (70/30, 50/50, 30/70, 10/90) flax/cotton and 100 % cotton were converted into fabrics through the integration of warp and weft yarns. The blend yarns were used as weft in the fabric construction using plain weave pattern. The properties of the produced blended fabrics were studied. The results show useful indications of the differences that exist in their physical and mechanical properties such as the fabric tensile strength, tearing strength, abrasion resistance, crease recovery, fabric drape, fabric thickness, fabric crimp and fabric sett. From the study it was discovered that as the flax content in the blend is increased, both tensile, tearing, abrasion resistance, fabric and crimp reduces.
