    1. Scope

    1.1 This table lists the commercial moisture regains commonly used for a number of textile fibers. Such moisture regain values are intended primarily for determining the commercial weight of a specific fiber when the fiber is bought or sold on this basis. These regain values also are used in calculating the linear density of yarn in procedures employing such factors and in the quantitative analysis of fiber blends.
