Development of Fabric Knitted by Hemp/Cotton Yarn
Hemp fiber has many excellent properties, but there are certain difficulties in spinning yarn because the fiber is hard and its cohesion is small. Cotton fiber is soft and its length, fineness is uniform therefore has excellent spin ability and can compensate for the shortage of hemp fiber. We developed the knitted fabrics that have moisture absorption and dry-fast properties using the hemp/cotton blended yarn and discussed weft knitting, dying as well as finishing processes. This shell fabric has special performance such as moisture absorption and air permeability, anti-mildew and antibacterial, anti-ultraviolet ray, antistatic, ecological health ect, which is the ideal sports and summer fabric.
