This document specifies procedures to measure the spirality or torque of woven and knitted garments after domestic laundering.
The results obtained from different procedures might not be comparable.
This document is not intended to measure the spirality of garments as manufactured, but rather the spirality after domestic laundering.
NOTE Some fabric constructions, such as denim, can have spirality intentionally introduced during manufacturing. Garments made of fabrics from circular knitting machines can have inherent nonverticality of wale alignment.
