The present investigation deals with methods of measuring fibre density and the effect of temperature and humidity. The density values of some dry fibres have been obtained by mass per unit volume, specific gravity bottle, flotation, gradient column and Beckman methods. Pretreatment to remove any entrapped air from the fibre material included either a modified drying technique or boiling in xylene. Density determinations of dry fibres have been carried out in different organic media. The density gradient column method was the principal method used, and it has been discussed in terms of its range, sensitivity, stability and calibration. This method was found to be more rapid and reliable than other methods for determining the density of a number of fibres. The density values of Acrilan, cellulose acetate, nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene, polyurethane, rubber, silk, viscose rayon, Terylene, Tricel and wool fibres have been obtained in the dry state at a constant temperature 20
