6 Light microscopy of a hydrated fiber showing thinner tip than the rest of the fiber. , 1993). Fibers shrink in proportion to the amount of cellulose present in the cell wall. The perimeter of less mature fibers (thinner cell wall) is larger than that of a more mature (thicker cell wall) fiber. The thinner cell wall is found nearer the fiber tip than the rest of the fiber. Fiber fineness directly determines yarn fineness. Although as few as 30 fibers can be spun into yarns in ring spinning, approximately 100 fibers in the yarn crosssection are usually the lower limit.

All measurements were performed at a constant temperature of 70 ∞F and a 65% relative humidity. , 2001, 2005). As a Mantis single fiber tensile instrument is not readily available but is employed in most work cited in the following sections, it is worth mentioning the difference from the Instron measurements. , 1997). On the Mantis, fibers are positioned manually. The instrument automatically straightens, clamps down, and exerts a preload on individual fibers. , 1995). The extra fiber handling on the Instron is believed to be the cause of the lower strength.
