The present study reveals a comparison of the physical properties of cotton/micro polyester yarns of count 30sNec with those of the 100% cotton and 100% micro polyester yarn. This set consists of 5 blend ratios 80:20, 65:35,0:50, 35:65, 20:80 along with 100% cotton and 100% micro polyester. These yarns are tested for its strength, yarn evenness and imperfections. The properties of the 65:35 blended yarns were comparable with the 100% cotton yarn. It was also observed that increasing the micro polyester content led to increase in properties. But the cotton plays a major role in the yarn property. The micro polyester proportion improves strength properties in the yarn. In this study, the ultimate proportion of the cotton and micro polyester is found to be 65:35 blend proportions from the test results.
