what are testing procedures and procedures to calculate the shirinkage of 100% cotton fabrics ( knitted and woven) ?
In order to carry out dimensional stability washes and calculate % shrinkage I would refer you to the following standards. BS EN ISO 3759;1995, BS EN 25077, BS EN ISO 6330;2001 for International Testing and AATCC 135 for American Testing. If you require any information regarding washing equipment quoted in these methods please contact SDL ATLAS through their website http://www.sdlatlas.com
