Nanocellulose fibres can be hand-spun from different intermediate states, such as nanocellulose paper and filter cake, which are made from the BC suspension as well as wet pellicle (WP) and dry pellicle (DP) from BC pellicles. In this study, it can be concluded that increasing the hanging weight can increase the Young’s modulus and the tensile strength of fibres. Nanofibres produced from BC pellicles as raw material have better performance than those made from BC suspension. The best properties obtained from the fibres produced from wet pellicles and suspended to a 100g hanging weight upon drying are Young’s modulus (33.8 GPa), tensile strength (610 MPa) and elongation at break (3.6%).
