Get to know the fabric parameters

Reasons for knowing the fabric parameters:

The properties of the fabric are closely linked to fabric parameters

making samples
Ⅰ. Making samples
  • The sample should properly represent the characteristics of the fabric.


  • The sample should not be selected near the edge of the fabric. The distance from the selvage must be more than 5 centimeters, and that from the end of the fabric must be more than 1.5 to 3 meters.
  • The size of the sample varies depending on the characteristics of the fabric, 15cm ×15cm are suitable for simple structure and small pattern fabrics, and 20cm×20cm for fabrics with big pattern.
identification of face or back of the fabric
Ⅱ. Identification of face or back of the fabric
  • The face of a fabric has a clear colour or patterns.
  • For rib or corded fabrics, the face are usually more dense and smooth.
  • For pile fabrics, the face has piles.
  • For double fabrics, the face has higher density, and better materials.
  • For terry fabrics, the face has denser loops.
identification of warp and weft
Ⅲ. Identification of warp and weft
  • The warp is always parallel with selvage.
  • The warp may be sized, and the weft not.
  • The warp usually has a bigger density .
  • The warp direction may have reed marks.
  • The warp is more often using ply yarn.

Identification of warp and weft

  • The Z-twist yarns are used for warp, and S-twist for weft if the warp and weft are different in twist direction.
  • The warp usually has higher twisted yarns.
  • The warp is usually better in quality.
  • For terry fabrics, the warp forms the loops.
  • For striped fabrics, the warp is parallel to the stripes.
  • Warp can be easily arranged with different kinds of yarns.
density measurement
Ⅳ. Density measurement
  • The density of the fabric is very important, as it directly affects the fabric’s appearance, handle, thickness, strength, warmth retention. There are two ways to measure it.

a: Direct measurement

b: Indirect measurement

Direct measurement

Thread density=threads counted/2.5=threads per cm

Indirect measurement-woven fabric

This is carried out by using an optical device known as a taper line grating.

crimp measurement
Ⅴ. Crimp measurement
  • Crimp refers to the amount of bending that is done by a thread as it interlaces with the threads that are lying in the opposite direction of the fabric
  • Formula:

Where: ly is the length of the yarn

lf is the length of the fabric

linear density tex measurement
Ⅵ .Linear density (tex) measurement

Where : G ─ The weight of the thread in gram at the official moisture regain

L─ The length of the thread in meter

The thread linear density indicates the weight in gram of 1000m of thread

fiber identification
Ⅶ. Fiber identification
  • a) Microscopically examination of the longitudinal and cross-sectional views of the fiber.
  • b) Burning test
  • c) The use of solvents
  • d) Other chemical tests
  • e) Staining
  • f) Melting point determination
  • g) Fiber density
fabric weight
Ⅷ .Fabric weight
  • Weighting measurement:

Mass per unit area(g/m2)=specimen mass (g) ×100

Where: mass per unit area is expressed in grams per square meter

specimen is 10cm×10cm

  • Calculating measurement: fabric weight is the sum of the weight of warp and weft threads

Where:p1—warp density(ends/10cm)

p2--- weft density (picks/10cm)

a1--- warp take-up(%)

a2 --- weft take-up(%)

Tex1—warp linear density

Tex2–- weft linear density

fabric structure and colour arrangement
Ⅸ. Fabric structure and colour arrangement
  • It is necessary to know the way in which the fabric is constructed. For example, twill weave or sateen. This can be obtained viewing the fabric with a piece of magnifying glass or a low magnification microscope.
