Quality of Fabric

Everyone wants to know what is considered good and bad fabric. There are several tests that can be done in the fabric industry to test the abrasion resistance.

One test is called the Wyzenbeek or Taber test. This test takes "a sample of fabric and rubs it back and forth with a cloth-covered or wire-screened covered roller several thousand times in both directions.” A rub forward and back is considered one rub. If a fabric endures 15,000 rubs, it's considered “good” fabric. A fabric reaches its maximum rubs when it begins to show a break in the yarn. This is how fabric is rated. Some fabrics with high rub ratings can be considered great for commercial use.
