Scope

This European Standard specifies test methods for the determination of stitch length and yarn linear density of a weft knitted fabric. They can be applied to warp knitted fabrics, if it is possible to de-knit the fabric.
The measurements will be applied to yarns from each knitting machine feeder and/or different patterning courses.
The results can be used for the analysis of fabric fault, e.g. barré analysis.
