This paper introduces a novel approach for evaluating fabric sensory responses. First, the problems in existing techniques are analyzed, and by comparing with successful cases in assessing human feeling towards cold/warmth and human color sense, a more scientific scheme based on the computer pattern recognition technique is exhibited and the details of the measurements, data processing and calculation of the ultimate parameters are introduced. The actual prototype of the instrument and related details are also provided. Finally, it is shown that the technique can also be utilized to evaluate some visual attributes such as drape and wrinkle recovery.
