Shrinkage is the process in which a fabric becomes smaller than its original size, usually through the process of laundry. Cotton fabric suffers from two main disadvantages of shrinking and creasing during subsequent washing. The garment is tested for both lengthwise and breadthwise shrinkage during the washing and that is being tested and analysed.




Spirality percentage depends on fabric torque and garment structure. Fabric Spirality tester is a equipment for dimensional distortion in circular plain knitted fabrics. This In House Test Method describes the method of test in order to determine the spirality test method which occurs in a material resulting from laundering procedures.

Print Fastness
