Handling characteristics such as stiffness and draping qualities have great importance for fabrics used in clothing and they could be evaluated by test devices and/or by human judges using subjective techniques. Fabric hand is a complex phenomenon, which is influenced from the properties of fibers, yams, fabrics and finishing treatments. Although there are numerous studies on fabric handle, it is still a contemporary subject, since it attracts the consumers' attention. In this study, effect of yam twist level, weft density, fabric weave pattern, yam ply and yam count on drapeability and bending properties of cotton fabrics were investigated. The results were compared and evaluated statistically by using independent samples T-Test and variance analysis methods.
