Handbook of natural fibres: Types, properties and factors by Ryszard M Kozlowski

By Ryszard M Kozlowski

Growing to be knowledge of environmental concerns has resulted in expanding call for for items made out of ordinary items, together with common fibres. The two-volume instruction manual of average fibres is an indispensible instrument in realizing the various homes and purposes of those vital fabrics. quantity 1: forms, homes and components affecting breeding and cultivation is an important consultant to quite a lot of usual fibres, and highlights key thoughts for his or her development. half one studies key varieties and primary houses of cotton, bast, silk, wool and bioengineered average cloth fibres. half is going directly to discover the advance of traditional fibre houses and creation via breeding and cultivation, starting with a dialogue of fibrous flax and cotton. stronger traditional fibre construction in the course of the prevention of fungal development is explored, in addition to using genetic engineering and biotechnology to reinforce fascinating features in typical fibres.

0 © Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2012 Cotton fibres 13 The length of different kinds of cotton fibre varies from 22 to 50 mm, and the diameter from 18 to 25 µm. 3 There are four main commercial species of cotton from the genus Gossypium: • • • • G. arboretum (Middle and Far East), G. herbaceum (Middle and Far East), G. hirsutum (America), G. barbadense (America and Egypt). Of these varieties: • 80% of the world’s cotton fibre production is from G. hirsutum, • 10% is long and extra long fibre varieties of G.

Olitorius are frequently softer, stronger and more lustrous than those of C. capsularis. 4 Cultivation Jute is grown in a wide range of soil types, mainly alluviums, laterite and calcareous with soil texture varying from sandy loam to clay loam. 5. White jute is relatively more tolerant to waterlogging especially at later stages of crop growth. Conversely, Tossa jute does not tolerate waterlogging and is usually grown on higher lands. In general, both species are more sensitive to waterlogging during the early stage of crop growth.
