Analysis of Fabric Handle of Warp Knitted Fabrics by PhabrOmeter System

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Fabric handle is getting increasing attention in the textile and clothing industry. It has been studied by many researchers since 1926. Binns initially stated that the sense of touch or handle attracts users due to the softness of wool.1 Fabric handle (also referred to as fabric hand or hand feel) is often determined by the judgment of buyers, which depends on various factors. To connect the sense of touch with physical testing, Peirce suggested use of stiffness measurements, as well as fabric handle and other related mechanical properties.2
