Abstract: The technology of objective fabric measurement has been applied to pure silk fabrics of different qualities, such as paz, habotai, georgette, crepe de chine, crepe satin and silk twill, in nominal weights ranging from 21 to 82 g/m2. The instrumentally measured properties of the finished silk fabrics are discussed in terms of fabric weight, thickness, tensile properties, shear, bending, compression, surface friction and surface geometry. The mean values and the range of these low-stress mechanical and surface properties for finished pure silk fabrics are reported. Using this data, the quality characteristics of finished silk fabrics have been evaluated objectively and compared with those of other textile materials. The measurements initiate what could become an important database for the objective evaluation of finished pure silk fabrics.
