Single jersey knit has a high tendency to crease. Some researches on the creasing properties in the rope processing have been reported, however its creasing properties during the open-width processing are few disclosed previously. There is no generally accepted method for evaluating the creasing extent of knit after this continuous process. The aim of this research is to develop a simple and repeatable way to evaluate the evolution of creasing defects during open-width processing of knit fabrics. As well as investigating the influences of various processing factors such as folding direction, wet pickup, steaming time and pre-heatsetting on the crease formation to provide insights into the key elements needed in an appropriate processing.
