Development of Cotton/Wool Blend Yarn for Knitwear

K. Caddel, D. Bean, H. Smith and E. Foster


The knitwear consumer in the United States purchases millions of dollars in yarn, knit fabric, and knit garments each year. Cotton is considered to be a very comfortable fiber for spring and summer wear and the quality-conscious consumer has a preference for natural fibers. Do to the inherent properties of cotton and wool fibers a blend would enhance the quality of knitwear. The purpose of the study was to develop and physically test cotton/wool blend yarns suitable for knitted career apparel.
