Study on Properties about Bamboo Yarns
In order to understand the basic performances of bamboo yarns, the tensile strength, abrasion resistance and hairiness of yarns are analyzed through the comparison of bamboo yarns, cotton yarns and ramie yarns. Bamboo yarns show a higher strength, a lower breaking elongation, a better abrasive resistance and an obvious hairiness. Because of the existence of uneven fineness, the strength of bamboo yarns display a higher level of unevenness than cotton yarns and ramie yarns. After moisture absorption, the strength, initial modulus and work to break will increase remarkably.
