The Effect of Preparation on the Spinning Quality of Cotton

C. K. Bragg, C. L. Simpson and D. G. West


Spinning laboratory experiments using cottons from two crop years and three growing areas showed that cottons with rough preparation result in little or no significant difference in yarn quality compared to cottons with equivalent fiber properties and normal preparation. However, manufacturing waste is significantly higher (approximately 1%) for cotton with rough preparation compared to equivalent cotton with normal preparation.
