In accordance with developing technologies in textile and garment industries, innovative products are submitted to the market continuously. Almost each innovative product introduced to the market provides a different functionality to the textiles such as breathability, lightweight, ultrathin etc. Some of the functional designs are turned into commercial products and some of them are still in experimental stage. In this study, it is aimed to analyze the worsted fabrics, which was designed to have higher tensile properties. Within the scope of this study, worsted fabrics produced from wool and high tenacity polyamide 6.6 fibers, which were mixed in the blend, with/without elastane. Compression, extensibility, bending rigidity, shear rigidity, tear strength, breaking strength and abrasion resistance properties of the fabrics were measured. According to the results, the use of elastane in the fabric structure causes an increase in the surface thickness, extensibility, formability of the fabrics, and a decrease in the bending rigidity, shear rigidity of the fabrics. Besides, the fabrics produced in this study have generally high tensile and abrasion resistance performance because of the high tenacity polyamide 6.6.
