In the recent years, developing new yarn is the fundamental phenomenon for technical textiles. Different yarns are required now days for both technical as well as for aesthetic properties. Kenaf has good antimicrobial, fire resistance and absorbency that can be utilized in various textiles needed for society. The Kenaf cotton blended yarn of 50%-50% was produced through rotor spinning and was spun into 10Ne count. The quality was evaluated for yarn strength, yarn elongation, evenness and hairiness. The quality parameters of kenaf-cotton blended yarn were compared to 100% cotton yarn. The results reveal that the kenaf-cotton blended yarn were in comparable quality with 100% cotton and can be made into fabrics of different weave structures and can be utilized for various potential applications like home textiles and medical textiles focusing towards a sustainable environment.
