Abstract

The recycled fibres market are growing in day by day. The main problem associated with the production of recycled yarn is the quality of the yarn obtained. The fibres are collected from knitted industry cotton waste and sorted according to the color of the waste. This research focus on use of different blending of recycled fibers with virgin cotton fibers to improve the quality of recycled fibre, there by increased use of the yarn in various sectors. Result showed that the lower value of short fiber content percent in 70:30 blend ratio of recycled fiber with virgin cotton showed a higher value of breaking strength and higher staple length of the fibre which have good spinnability and good yarn quality compared with other samples.
