Abstract : The purpose of this development was to provide an improved scarf fabric for use by Air Force personnel for wear with the improved fatigue uniform whenever field conditions or formations require a 'dressed-up' appearance. The crepe fabric was to be lightweight, durable, cleanable, washable, and be colorfast to sunlight. The fabric produced was a blend of 75% polyester and 25% rayon. The fabric developed was considered successful and could be manufactured by textile weaving concerns at a reasonable cost. The color of the fabric was ultramarine blue. (Author)
