Textiles - Determination of spirality after laundering - Part 3: Woven and knitted garments (ISO 16322-3:2005, IDT)
This part of ISO 16322 specifies procedures to measure the spirality or torque of woven and knitted garments after laundering.
The results obtained from different procedures may not be comparable.
This part of ISO 16322 is not intended to measure the spirality of garments as manufactured, but rather the spirality after laundering.
NOTE Some fabric constructions, such as denim, may have spirality intentionally introduced during manufacturing. Garments made of fabrics from circular knitting machines may have inherent nonverticality of wale alignment.
