1987-88 Cotton Color Grades as Related to Fiber Quality and Fabric Dyeability

Oscar Hinojosa, Devron P. Thibodeaux, Harmon H. Ramey, and Steven M. Buco


Samples from bales that were used in making the physical forms of the cotton grade standards for the 1987 and 1988 crop years were processed on the fifty gram microspinning system. Sufficient yarn was obtained for preparation of small lots of tubular-knit fabric. The Hunter lab Model D25-2 Colorimeter was used to monitor color parameters for samples at different stages of processing ranging from raw stock to dyed knit fabric. Statistical analyses were performed to explore inter-relationships analyses among fiber and yarn physical properties, raw stock color grade, raw quality and fabric dyeability.
