Newer natural fibres are often explored due to eco-friendliness and availability of such fibres in the specific regions. Agave Americana L fibres, extracts from the leaves of the Agave plant, represent the naturally available cellulosic fibres with interesting properties. Voids, in the cross-sections of the fibres, were observed in the microscopic analysis and the fibres exhibit high degree of crystallinity. Bundle fibres extracted from the leaves exhibit low elongation with high tensile stress compared to many non-apparel fibres and the moisture, thermal properties similar to that of any other cellulosic fibres.

Keywords: Degree of crystallinity; Fibre length, Moisture regain, Tenacity, Transitions, Thermal degradation
