Mechanical Properties of the Knitted Fabric of SPF/Modal Blended Yarn
In order to understand the influence of the blended ratio of the soybean protein fibers to the properties of blended fabrics, five soybean protein fiber/modal blended fabrics are knitted and tested. By the analysis of the results, the relationship between the properties of the blended fabrics and the blended ratio of the soybean protein fibers are obtained. With the increase of the ratio of the soybean protein fibers, the tensile strength and the elongation of the blended fabrics increase and the tearing strength and bursting strength of the fabric decrease. With the increase of the ratio of soybean protein fibers, the softness increases and the bending length, abrasion resistance of the knitted fabrics decrease.
