Abstract: A simple nozzle extraction method for measuring objectively the fabric handle has been used. This method is based on the use of a simple attachment fitted to a tensile testing machine and measures the force generated while extracting a circular fabric specimen through a nozzle. Different testing variables, like presence of supporting plate, extraction speed and shape of the specimen, have significant effect on peak extraction force, whereas the number of pass does not have any specific effect on the extraction behaviour of fabric. Chemical finishing results in reduction in extraction force and at the same time the traverse-at-peak extraction force also reduces with the chemical finish.
