Özet

Denim-like knitted fabrics have been used to produce softer, cheaper, and more elastic clothes than the clothes produced by woven denim fabrics. Lower dimensional stability and strength properties were the disadvantages of denim -like knitted fabrics. The aim of this study was to reach the more resistant fabric type to successive launderings without losing the attractive denim view. For this purpose eighteen different denim-like knitted fabrics were produced and exposured to successive launderings. The dimensional stabilities of the knitted fabrics were measured after each washing cycles. The total dimensional change of the fabric's dimensions and the structural properties were measured and evaluated after 3rd washing cycles. All of the test results were assessed by using the graphs and the statistical analysis.
