Abstract:

The study was conducted to evaluate the performance of different fabricated mountages viz., spiral mountage, square mountage and zig-zag mountage in comparison with Thalaghattapura ribbon chandrike, plastic collapsible mountage and bamboo mountage on various cocoon reeling parameters by using two different silkworm hybrids viz., the cross breed (CB) (PM x CSR2) and the double hybrid (DH) (Krishnaraja) and data were recorded on various cocoon reeling parameters. The study results revealed that, average filament length (AFL) was significantly longest in square mountage (890.51 m) and shortest in bamboo mountage (862.27 m) for CB and the AFL was found non-significant for DH; non breakable filament length (NBFL) was found non significant in CB and it was significantly longer in spiral mountage (449.56 m) and shorter in plastic mountage (428.83 m) for DH; filament weight was significantly maximum in square mountage and ribbon chandrike (0.287 g) and it was minimum in plastic mountage (0.252 g) for CB and the DH exhibited non-significant difference for filament weight; raw silk percentage was found non-significant for both CB and DH; significantly higher denier was found in square mountage (2.90) which was coarser denier and finer denier was found in zig-zag mountage (2.61) for CB and the denier was found non-significant for DH. The spiral, square and zig-zag mountages have exhibited good results when compared to bamboo and plastic collapsible mountage.
