1. Purpose and Scope

1.1 This method is an accelerated test for determination of relaxation, consolidation and felting shrinkage of woven and knitted textiles containing 50% or more wool.1.2 The overall dimensional change in a fabric during home laundering is a significant performance factor to the ultimate consumer of the garment. However, further analysis of the components of dimensional change is invaluable to a fabric manufacturer, since it allows the fabric manufacturer to make appropriate changes in design and processing of fabrics to reduce their tendency to change dimensionally when washed.
