An attempt has been made to analyze the effect and as well as to gain an insight of changing the loop length of the knitted fabric against non-dimensional parameters such as the loop shape factor during different stages of relaxation using corespun cotton/lycra yarn. The yarn count, machine gauge and machine diameter are kept constant but the loop length is varied. Three different structures (Popcorn, Double Airtex and Honeycomb) at 0.106, 0.118 and 0.129 inches loop length for each structure are produced. This study will help to analyze the relationship between loop length and the non-dimensional parameters like Kc, Kw, S, Kc/Kw.
