ABSTRACT

It was planned to compare the spinning potentials of imported cottons viz. American cotton (Acala 1517-95), Uzbek cotton (C-6524), Australian cotton (Sicala-40), Brazilian cotton (Matta) and Zimbabwean cotton (Albar Sz-9314) with Pakistani cotton (MNH-93), in term of their utility values in textiles mills. American and Brazilian cottons generates the better results.
