Now it is only exceeded in volume by polyester – and this position is achieved without the diversity of form and physical properties of polyester fibres. Partly the dominance of cotton textiles is due to the economics of production, distribution and manufacture, but it also results from the combination of structure and physical properties that is the subject of this chapter.

2(a)). Drying of the fibers involves the removal of fluids from the lumens and inter-molecular water in the cellulose. The fluid loss from the lumens causes the cylindrical fibers to collapse to form twists or convolutions (Fig. 2(b)). The loss of intermolecular water allows the cellulose chains to come closer together and form intermolecular hydrogen-bonds. , 1974). The accessibility of water in fiber structure in the hydrated state is higher than after desiccation. The collapse of cell walls and hydrogen bond formation cause irreversible morphological changes including structural heterogeneity, decreasing porosity, and sorption capacity in the fibers (Stone and Scallan, 1965).
