Abstract:

In this paper, an objective measuring method was devised to determine the handle of knitted fabrics. A test was performed using a special pulling device consisting of two horizontal plates: a base plate with a hole in the centre and a distance plate placed at a specified distance from the base plate. The device is mounted on a tensile testing machine. Since there is no standard method of assessing the handle of summer T-shirt knits, a mathematical method (Weighted Euclidean Distance method) was applied which highly correlates with the results of the KES-F system. The correlation analysis revealed that the features of the pull-through curve corresponded to the result of the Weighted Euclidean Distance method (WD-values). The pulling-through method with a distance plate could be a useful quantitative method of determining fabric handle during product development, quality control and consumer preference studies.
