These spinning properties include flexibility, softness, and single fibre characteristics that are required for making spun yarn using cotton spinning system (CSS). The CSS is the only spinning system that can produce high quality
Keywords: cottonization, bast fibre, spinning properties, chemical treatment, mechanical modifications
