1.The shrinkage will be different according to different material of fabric.Usually large absorbent fibers will swell after soaking. Diameter will increase and length will shorten. For example water absorption of some viscose will reach 13%, while some synthetic fiber’s is less because it has bad hygroscopicity.
2.The shrinkage will be different according to different density of fabric. For example shrinkage will be similar between warp and weft if their densities are similar. On the contrary, shrinkage of weft will be larger if density of the weft is larger than warp’s.
3.The shrinkage will be different according to different yarn count of fabric. Shrinkage of fabric which has thick yarn count is large and vice versa.
4.The shrinkage will be different according to different production technology of fabric. Generally fiber of fabric will stretch couple times during weaving, dyeing and finishing. Long process will make shrinkage larger and vice versa.
