What is Fabric Specification Sheet?

Fabric is an important and basic element in clothing and fashion. We cannot imagine the world of human Beings with fabric in the era. The fabric has to go through many processes and tests up to the finishing process. There are many types of fabric used for various purposes. Textile and Apparel merchandisers spent a huge time behind fabric sourcing. To make a cloth, first, you need to get needed a specific fabric. Then the cakewalk does a clothing business order. This article is about the details of the Fabric specification sheet.

The fabric specification sheet has the details of the fabric from the technical aspect. It included the fiber origin, the weaving process, design, weight, finishing type, and all fabric testing applications. A long list is there as a fabric parameter in the spec sheet. Knowing fabric specifications is important for a fabric merchandiser, fabric technologist, and anyone related to fabric sourcing. The fabric spec sheet is a very important document in the textile industry. Here we’re sharing the Fabric specification sheet template below.
