Fig-2: Method of measurement for maximum distortions due to bowMethod of Measurement for Skew (Bias):
Lay the fabric, without tension, on a horizontal surface at least three yards long.2.
Place a straight edge across the fabric perpendicular to the selvages at a point where a fillingor course yarn, stripe, or dominant line begins at the selvage.3.
Measure the distance parallel to and along a selvage between the point at which the yarn,stripe, or dominant line meets this selvage and the perpendicular line to the selvage form thepoint at which the same yarn, stripe, or dominant line meets the opposite selvage (See Fig- 3)4.
Repeat this procedure at least three places along the length of the fabric and report theaverage maximum bias.
