This study was an attempt to spin 100% sunnhemp fibers, grown in Akola district of Maharashtra, India, on Jute spinning system. The sunnhemp fibers were first sprayed with oil and then softened. These fibers were then processed through various machine sequence by varying the number of carding and drawing machines. The yarn was spun in each case and tested for Count Strength Product and Evenness. This yarn was then used as a weft yarn to weave a 3/1-drill fabric with a cotton warp and tested for tensile strength. It was concluded that the set III with three carding and three drawing sequence gave an even yarn. The optimum twist per inch in the yarn was found to be 6.0.
