• Dyeability

    Chapter 2 - Cotton value addition - The impact of cotton fibre properties on textile 

    Dyeability is important, particularly in terms of streakiness and white specks. Dyeability is related to micronaire, maturity, colour and fibre structure, some 70% of yarn-related dye problems being due to the fibre. The control of the first three of these properties will largely control dyeability, although there is still a need for a rapid test for dyeability (e.g. by means of UV or NIR).
