In the Covid-19 pandemic year, the cotton value-chain, like others, has faced unprecedented disruptions. The industry was expected to have a decrease in the production and consumption owing to the Covid restrictions. Yet the cotton textiles supply chain in India has shown resilience, as the cotton consumption in the country during 2021-2022 is expected to reach around 26 million bales which is at par with pre-Covid consumption levels.
Textile industry carries out immense complex processes right from preparing yarn which is a raw material for fabric to a variety of processes to produce finished fabric and after processes like fabric printing etc. Blowroom is one of the important operations in textile manufacturing. The blowroom carries out different processes to open and clean cotton […]
Fibres below 12.5 mm in length neither contributes to quality or strength of the yarn. The higher presence of Short fibres in roving becomes a nightmare for spinners particularly when we face problems for minimum number of fibres required in the cross section to spin a particular count.
We have been witnessing a steady increase in the Short fibres in the cotton being traded and supplied in the recent times. Is this the next big problem the cotton spinners will be facing after decades of issues related to contamination? At least we have partially solved the contamination issue with various initiatives both in farming, Ginning and spinning side.
