Abstract: Pashmina shawls prepared from different hand spun, machine spun and blended yarns have been evaluated subjectively. The important handle properties, such as softness, smoothness, lustre and total hand value, have been assessed by sensory evaluation through expert judges of different age and gender. The correlation coefficient between the groups for individual property has been determined. The softness and smoothness values show highest agreement between different groups followed by smoothness and total hand value. The good agreement between groups indicates that the difference in pashmina shawl manufacturing and blend composition can be distinguished. The subjective test results have been compared with FAST objective values and a good correlation is observed.
