Abstract: Nineteen fabric samples of three different varieties such as dupion, soft and taffeta silk have been produced and tested for stretch and growth properties in both dry and wet conditions. It is observed that stretch and growth properties of silk fabrics are correlated with cover factor, fabric thickness, fabric warp crimp and twist significantly. The increase in stretch and growth properties of fabric in wet condition may be due to more swelling and relaxation of fibre structure and also attributed to breaking of hydrogen bond chain links in protein fibre.
