- The relation between cotton fiber properties and dye absorption at equilibrium has been studied for nine cotton samples representing a large range of fiber properties. The absorption was studied both for mercerized and unmercerized cotton samples. A relationship was found to exist between dye absorption at equilibrium and the Micronaire and maturity of American Upland type cotton. A linear relationship was found to exist between maturity and dye absorption at equilibrium. The barium hydroxide absorption also was determined ; similar results were obtained.
