Contamination of cotton fibre

Contamination, even if it is a single foreign fibre, can lead to the downgrading of yarn, fabric or garments to second quality or even the total rejection of an entire consignment and is thus a very important fibre parameter.

 The Australian Cotton CRC Mill Survey rated contamination as one of the most favourable fibre properties of Australian cotton. However, there has been concern that incidences of some contaminants are increasing. This was supported by International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) Contamination Survey findings from 1999 to 2005, which showed an increase in the number of contaminated Australian cotton bales delivered to overseas spinning mills.
