Relationships among physical properties, low-stress mechanical properties and hand value of woollen fabric with and without fusible interlinings were examined. Subjective evaluation and objective measurements were analysed statistically. The results reveal that thickness, weight and adhesive density properties of woollen fabric with fusible interlinings impact hand value. Further exploration of adhesive point density, thickness and weight show effect on the lowstress mechanical properties from high to low in order. This study provides new theoretical insights on hand value and lowstress mechanical properties of woollen fabric with interlinings which is predicted by physical properties. It provided a convenient method for choosing request interlining for woollen fabric using for men’s suits.
