The effect of removal of different levels of comber noil, while preparing yarn, singeing and dyeing of yarn, on quality of fabric has been studied. The dyed yarns produced from singed and unsinged cone yarns, which, in turn, are produced with different levels of removal of comber noil have been converted into fabric. The pilling resistance, drape, and low-stress mechanical properties of fabric samples are studied. The fabrics produced from singed yarn possess higher pilling grades. The singeing of yarn increases the drapability of the fabric. The fabric produced from singed yarn shows a higher total hand value as compared to that of the fabrics produced from unsinged yarns. The results show that the removal of more amount of comber noil to produce yarn with lesser imperfection at the ring cop yarn stage does not necessarily result in the fabric with better pilling resistance and handle, whereas it can be achieved by the singeing process.

Abstract


The effect of removal of different levels of comber noil, while preparing yarn, singeing and dyeing of yarn, on quality of fabric has been studied. The dyed yarns produced from singed and unsinged cone yarns, which, in turn, are produced with different levels of removal of comber noil have been converted into fabric. The pilling resistance, drape, and low-stress mechanical properties of fabric samples are studied. The fabrics produced from singed yarn possess higher pilling grades. The singeing of yarn increases the drapability of the fabric. The fabric produced from singed yarn shows a higher total hand value as compared to that of the fabrics produced from unsinged yarns. The results show that the removal of more amount of comber noil to produce yarn with lesser imperfection at the ring cop yarn stage does not necessarily result in the fabric with better pilling resistance and handle, whereas it can be achieved by the singeing process.
