These studies were conducted in the Department of Fibre Technology,University of Agriculture, Faisalabad during 2001-2002. Various ratios of jutecutting (0, 10, 20 and 30 percent) were added in batch and its effect on juteyarn quality ratio and end breakage was recorded. Different flyer speeds(3400, 3600, 3800 and 4000 rpm) and yarn grist's (9, 12 and 16 pounds) werealso studied. The results showed that effect of cutting percentage and yarngrist on quality ratio was highly significant. However, effect of flyer speedand all interactions were non-significant. The highest and lowest values forcutting percentage were 82.83 and 71.19 at zero and 30 percent cutting,respectively. For flyer speed the highest and lowest values of quality ratiowere 77.31 and 73.80 for 3600 and 4000 rpm, respectively. Similarly, yarn gristof 9 gave better quality ratio (87.93). The results for end breakage showedhighly significant effect of flyer speed.
