Setting Practical Scientific Criteria For Cotton Fiber Selection and Blending

Yehia E. El Mogahzy


In recent years, revolutionary developments have been made in the area of fiber and yarn information systems. In conjunction with these developments, powerful techniques of fiber selection and blending have been introduced. These techniques aim at optimizing the utilization of cotton fiber properties with respect to a particular spinning system and/or an end product. The technical objective of a fiber selection technique is to select uniform cotton mixes or bale-laydowns from a bale population [1,2]. The economical merits of fiber selection are reflected in better bale management and optimum cost of fiber blend components [3,4].
