Abstract: In this article, the effect of resin finish on the degree of set is discussed. Furthermore, the relationship of the degree of set and dimensional stability is analyzed. After relaxation treatments, the yarns in a fabric would be set at a certain level. As the fabric is subjected to prolonged relaxation treatments, the yarn will become more set until the shape of the unraveled yarn is similar to the shape of the loop in the fabric. The yarn that is removed from a knitted fabric has a curvature value close to zero, and the curvature is exactly as the corresponding position at the knitted loop. From previous research, it is known that the degree of set affects the dimensional properties in a plain knitted fabric. In this article, the degree of set increases with resin level. It explains why the resin finish can stabilize the dimensional properties indirectly.
