Issue 4 Table of Contents

Scanning electron microscopy shows that white specks are a mass of immature fibers that have flat, ribbon-like appearance.  They appear on the surface of darkly dyed fabrics as specks or non-uniform streaks.  To eliminate subjective analysis of white specks on fabrics, procedures to quantify white specks using image analysis are described.
