knitted fabrics find numerous applications in sportswear fabric industry, during their use it can be subjected to loading-unloading due to the body movements which can be indirectly affected by the dynamic elastic recovery value of the fabrics. The cyclic loads lead to the redistribution of fibers in the yarn structure, because they tend to get the minimum level of energy. Dimensional properties of knitted fabric are widely affected by the externally applied forces that could involve permanent deformation. Cotton/Spandex knitted fabrics are widely used for several applications. In this work, an attempt was done to analyze the effect of cyclic loading on cotton/spandex knitted fabric subjected to the different levels of cyclic loading under different values of initial extensions. Knitted fabric mechanical properties with different percentages of spandex were tested. The fabric properties and the number of cycles indicate the change of the residual extension and the drop in the fabric strength and stiffness.
