This work presents the effect of regional variation (Varamin-Tehran, Klibar-Azarbayjan & Nishabor-Khorasan) on the biometry properties of cotton linter fibers in Iran. Results of analysis of variance (ANOVA) indicated that the region had significant effect on the biometry properties of cotton linter fibers. The highest and lowest of fiber length and slenderness ratio were found in Tehran and Khorasan site, respectively. The values of fiber width, cell wall thickness and Runkel ratio in Azarbayjan region and fiber lumen diameter and flexibility ratio in the Khorasan site is more than other regions. The mean of fiber length, fiber width, cell wall thickness and lumen diameter were determined 2860, 19.96, 9.28 and 10.68 μm for combined regions in Iran.
