Development of Functional Light-thin Wool blended Knitted Fabrics

The project aims to (a) develop new finer wool blended Sirofil composite yarns for functional light-thin knitted fabrics through a modified Sirofil composite yarn spinning system with capability of tension and position control of the filament component; (b) investigate the effects of the fiber content, yarn structure and spinning parameter on the yarn properties; (c) optimize the fiber content, spinning parameters and the filament feeding-tension of wool blended Sirofil composite yarns and (d) develop functional light-thin wool blended knitted fabrics with target functions including moisture management, warm, light weight, and easy care by using the developed yarns via fabric structure design.
