Blown bubble-spinning was recently explored for the effective fabrication of nanofibrous yarns in a one-step process. In this study, air-flow's temperature and velocity, which play the key role in the formation and morphology of nanofibers, are investigated and optimized. The present study offers a beneficial opportunity for the scale-up production of nanofibrous yarns in the future.
