Honeydew on the surface of cotton fibre can be transferred to a metallic surface of the spinning machines or rubber rollers, etc., resulting in lapping. As a result, it may lower the efficiency of the yarn production and yarn quality. Cotton stickiness is due mainly to entomological sugars produced by insects, which are designated by the term “honeydew”. This test method is used to evaluate the degree of honeydew contamination by visualization of honeydew droplets in cotton fibre.
