The dye ability of the Jute/Cotton union fabric with cotton yarn in the warp and Jute: Cotton yarns in the weft direction were studied with different percentage of Jute/Cotton blend in weft direction. The K/S and colour tristimulus values of (reactive dye) the different formulations (Jute/cotton: 30:70, 40:60, 50:50 and 70:30) after and before the softening finish were studied. The experiment focuses on the effect of jute content on the colour strength and fastness properties of finished fabric. The result reveals that, the colour strength value (K/S) was higher in the case of fabric proportion with more jute (70:30 jute/cotton). The finishing process has significant influence on the colour strength value (p
