In this study, an experimental work is presented to determine the effects of fourteen different knit structures of 80% Lambswool-20% Polyamide knitted outerwear fabrics, on the dimensional properties; pilling resistance, abrasion resistance, bursting strength, air permeability and bending rigidity. The effect of relaxation condition on the dimensional properties of the fabrics was also studied From the analyses of variance, it is seen that the effects of knit structure on the properties of the knitted fabrics inspected are highly significant. Specifically, the effect of knit structure on the bursting strength, air permeability, and bending rigidity is highly significant in washed fabrics. Tuck stitch fabrics have the lowest resistance to abrasion. Links-links, seed stitch, and moss stitch fabrics have the highest resistance to pilling.
