Fabric Hand: Guidelines for the Subjective Evaluation of
standard by American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, 2011

These guidelines may be used in the following circumstances:

  • When different people at different times wish to follow the same protocol for examining fabrics.
  • In training evaluators to detect and distinguish among different constituent elements or components of hand.
  • When an individual wishes to duplicate the conditions under which a fabric has been previously evaluated.
  • With a panel of individuals evaluating the same fabric(s).
