Abstract: Dimensional stability is regarded as being of primary importance to finished garments. Garments made from fabrics without dimensional stability may change shape after laundering, which is undesirable for wearers. This chapter discusses the principles of dimensional stability in textiles, factors affecting dimensional stability in fibres and fabrics, and methods that can be used to improve dimensional stability in textiles. A detailed account of dimensional stability in knitted fabrics is also given.
