Abstract: In this paper, the author applies the principle of information theory to probe the role that experience plays in the process of fabric hand evaluation. 8 experts and 8 non-experts, two group judges assessed 8 medium-weight worsted fabrics for men’s suiting. The results have been analysed. The data show that the expert group has the higher ability of handling instinct attributes of a fabric than the non-expert group do. In other words, the experts seem to be more sensitive to the change of fabric physical and mechanical properties than the non-experts. And when a expert assesses a fabric by hand, he introduces few subjective factors, that is to say, the result of the evaluation of touch quality of a fabric by a expert has higher objectivity or reliability. This may provide a fundamental or a train of thought for the objective assessment of fabric hand in textile science and technology.
