Abstract: The low-stress mechanical properties of Tencel fabric were examined by means of the Kawabata Evaluation System for Fabrics (KES-F) before treatment and after each process of fibrillation, namely (1) desizing, (2) primary fibrillation, (3) enzyme treatment, (4) secondary fibrillation and (5) dehydrating and tumble drying. It was found that the surface, tensile, shearing, bending and compression properties were altered after each processing step. The changes in these properties are related closely to the inter-fibre/inter-yarn frictional force.
