Abstract: Early studies on the saturated felting value of the untreated plain knitted wool fabrics were only confined to a narrow range of yarn linear densities and machine gauges without any generalised conclusion. In this project, the plain knitted wool fabrics produced on commongauge flat-knitting machines were investigated in terms of a wide range of yarn linear densities, loop lengths, tightness factors, yarn twists and fibre diameters. The knitted fabrics were taken to undergo the IWS 6 x 5A washing in order to obtain the saturated felting shrinkage. The data obtained after statistical analyses revealed that the saturated felting value of the untreated plain knitted wool fabrics depended upon loop length and tightness factor while the yarn linear density, fibre diameter and yarn twist had no significant effect on the saturated felting value. Further regression analysis also entailed the development of a mathematical model for predicting the saturated felting value of the untreated plain knitted wool fabrics.
