The subjective perception of beauty plays a key role in the purchasing decision. This paper investigates the texture properties of knitted single jersey pantyhose fabrics, by defining the degree to which difference in texture can be subjectively accessed, as well as the contribution of texture to the aesthetic properties. Subjective evaluation was conducted by a panel of forty untrained evaluators on a sample of nine fabrics with different yarn count and composition. Objective measurement of the fabric texture was carried out by image analysis. The comparison of the objectively and subjectively measured texture showed that the differences in texture due to yarn count variation are visually perceptible, as coarser yarns were found to contribute to smoother texture in both cases. A smooth texture was found to be more appealing to the evaluators.
