    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a chemical procedure for determination of the amount of wool substance soluble in alkali under standard conditions and is applicable to wool in scoured fiber form, or as fiber obtained from yarn or from woven or nonwoven fabric.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound are to be regarded as standard. The values stated in SI units are provided for information only.

    Note 1--This test method is applicable to other animal fibers although the level of alkali-solubility may be different from wool. With individual animal fibers, undamaged solubility should be determined before attempting to assess damage on an unknown sample.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
