Effects of an enzyme treatment on yarn properties

Reiyao Zhu


Recent advances in cellulase treatments of
cotton fabrics have resulted in improved softness,
enhanced drapeability, and reduced piling.
These changes can transform low-quality fabrics
into higher quality textiles in an environmentally
friendly manner. Several studies have reported
the effects of cellulase enzymes on fabrics made
of cotton, cotton/polyester and cotton/wool
blends [1,2,4,6]. However, the literature reveals a
tack of information about effects of cellulase
enzyme treatments on cotton yarn properties.
This is to report on a study of impacts of enzyme
treatment on properties of both ring-spun and
rotor-spun yarns.
