Fiber Properties and Serviceability
Serviceability:
- Aesthetics
- Durability
- Comfort
- Appearance retention
- Care Environmental
- Cost
Aesthetic Properties:
Cover greater diameter of fiber, greater cover
Translucence The ability of light to pass through a material
Luster how light interacts with the surface of materials
o To make fiber shiny, we must direct more of the light to be directed
to our eyes, instead of being refracted
Drape the way in which fabric falls or hangs
o Depends on design of garment and properties of fibers
Texture the look/feel of a garment
Hand how a garment feels to your hand; relates heavily to comfort
properties
Subjective view of the combination of the above
Durability Properties:
Strength ability to resist stress
o Tenacity or tensile strength the ability of a textile to withstand
pulling force
o Mechanical properties stress versus strain
o Formula on pg 12
If slope is steep, the fabric is stronger
Uderstad youg’s odulus
Greater the pascal, the stronger the fiber
Abrasion resistance withstand rubbing
Pilling formation of balls
Elongation degree of stretching
