Study on Relationship between Mechanical Properties and Seam Smoothness Worsted Fabric
The instability of seam smoothness for worsted fabric is always a big problem in suit industry. With substantial development and application of new worsted fabric as well as the comprehensive application of various fiber materials，it is difficult to control seam smoothness of suit, creating the quality of suite to descend and adversely affecting the brand development in suit industry. The purpose of this paper is, therefore, intending to study the relationship between worsted fabric mechanical properties and garment seam smoothness grade as well as the effect of environmental air temperature and humidity conditions on smoothness of seam sample, by selecting several pieces of worsted fabrics and testing their mechanical properties through FAST. The goal of this paper is to facilitate textile and garment enterprises to improve their own textile process and finishing as well as the sewability of worsted fabrics.
