Abstract : The purpose of this project is to provide shade standards and tolerances in shade Blue 1084, Cloth, Wool/Polyester, Type III, of Specification MIL-C-21115B. Nine different lots of top were dyed, blended and combed. The same base components were used in all nine lots. Small percentages of colored wool were used to throw the shades to the 'full red', 'thin green,' etc. These nine different lots were processed into yarn and woven into 'blankets' so that each of the nine lots were used as warp and each of the nine lots were also used as filling. The yarn count and fabric construction of the blankets was standard for fabric of this type. The blanket fabric was finished and submitted to the contractor and approved. Contract quantities were then processed exactly the same as the blankets. (Author)
