Conventionally it was not possible to produce jute yarn finer than 172 tex. But recent developments have made it possible to produce yarn up to 60 tex (1.75 lb/spy) out of 100% jute and jute blended with cotton, wool, flax, acrylic, rayon, silk etc. This type of jute yarn has the prospect of being used in high quality jute textiles, particularly in apparel viz., trousers, top apparels, waistcoats, outer jackets, etc.
At present a few industries are producing finer yarns of jute and union fabrics (with cotton warp and jute weft), in a limited scale, for using in top apparels (waistcoats, sleeveless jackets etc.).
