Abstract: The problem of unpredictable shrinkage of cotton knitted fabrics and garments faced by the industry has been investigated by knitting single jersey cotton fabrics using the similar yarn and knitting parameters as used in the industry and finishing them. Through linear regression analysis, the variable factors, which affect the shrinkage and should be included in the domain of the quality control system, have been identified and predictive equations are established. Although, the variable factors, namely linear density, twist factor, machine gauge and stitch length, influence the shrinkage to a variable degree, stitch length is the dominating factor. If shrinkage can be controlled, fabric weight is predicted with high accuracy.
