Abstract: Earlier studies on the dimensional behaviour and properties of plain knitted wool fabrics were only confined to a narrow range of yarn counts and machine gauges leading to sectional and conflicting experimental results. In this project, plain knitted wool fabrics produced by common-gauge hand flat-knitting machines were investigated for dimensional properties in terms of appropriate yarn linear densities, twist factors and tightness factors. The knitted fabrics were then allowed to undergo the simulated industrial relaxation. The data obtained after statistical analysis revealed the significance as well as the correlation of loop length, yarn count, tightness factor, machine gauge and twist factor that would affect the linear and area dimensions of the resultant fabrics.
