Unformatted text preview: 15:23 There are several general fabric properties which are important in explaining fabric performance these include descriptive, quality, and physical properties 4.1. Descriptive properties these properties physically describe a fabric, just as height, weight, and other measurements describe a person. The fiber content and physical construction of fabrics determine their performance on tests or in consumer use. The contribution of these physical properties to fabric performance is shown in the diagram below: Molecular properties fiber structure | | fiber properties yarn structure | | |______________________| | Fiber properties contribute a great deal to the final fabric properties. Both the molecular make-up as well as the arrangement of the molecules in the fibers determine the fiber...
