    One of the most important problems in socks manufacturing industry is change in size that affects the dimensions of final product. This dimension instability arises mainly due to the strains in the fabric getting relaxed during any wet treatment. Change in dimension play a vital role in achieving the required specifications of a sock. This dimensional change may be in a positive (growth) or negative (shrinkage) direction for fabric length and width. In this research article a statistical model is developed showing the effect of loop length, count and construction of cotton socks on its dimensional stability during wet processing. Carded cotton socks with different counts (16/1 Ne and 20/1 Ne) and loop lengths (0.30 cm and 0.40 cm) were developed. All the developed samples were subject to reactive dyeing, washing and boarding. The dimensional stability was calculated and analyzed by ma.. Read More»
