The present study was conducted to ascertain the effect of process variables on chemical treatment of jute fiber. It was found that variables have direct impact on the quality, strength and other parameters of the fiber and with the increase of concentration of penetrating agent, the strength, extension at break and fineness were almost same, but with the increase of caustic soda concentration, the strength, extension at break and the fineness were decreased. Strength has been decreased but extension at break and fineness was unchanged with the increase of time, temperature and stabilizer concentration. With the increase of liquor ratio strength and extension at break were observed to increase but fineness was decreased.
