Influence of Bamboo and Cotton Blend Ratio on Low-stress Tensile Properties of Garments

Zamir Ahmed Abro


The Bamboo:Bamboo and Cotton:Cotton blends have widely attracted the low-stress tensile properties of textiles, especially for garment wear. The tensile properties of the garments showed that properties such as the linearity of tensile (LT), tensile energy (WT), tensile resilience (RT) and tensile strain (EM) of Bamboo-Cotton garments are are influenced by increasing or decreading the portion of Bamboo fibers. Moreover, the content of Bamboo fiber showed the direct influence on low-stress tensile properties of garments. The low-stress tensile properties are influenced by the portion of the Bamboo fiber, yarn diameter, and twist. Thus, the low tensile properties have given remarkable features for tailoring and suiting of clothes.
