Abstract

Natural cellulose fibres extracted from cornhusks have been blended with cotton and polyester and processed on the ring and rotor spinning machines. The processability of cornhusk fibres on the conventional spinning systems, compatibility with cotton and polyester, and properties of the blended yarns have been studied. The properties of cornhusk fibre blended yarns are also compared with those of the similar yarns produced from unconventional fibres, such as pineapple and banana leaves, milkweed and kenaf. It is observed that the blending of cornhusk fibres with cotton does not adversely affect the properties of yarns while the blending of cornhusk fibres with polyester improves the strength and elongation of the yarns.
