The phenomenon of fabric deformation can be observed not only keeping in mind the type of material, the raw material, geometric and constructive parameters, but also the conditions which which material is exposed under action of tensile force (the size of force, time, velocity of acting and so on). Investigates the influence of the tensile force size on total deformation as well as the deformation components: elastic, viscoelastic and plastic. Reports an experiment conducted on clothing wool fabrics (18 different samples) which were exposed to various tensile forces (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 per cent of breaking force) during 15 minutes. After this time limit had expired, their relaxation in a period of 24 hours was examined. From the diagrams of fabric relaxation (126 diagrams), determines deformation components and presents a summary using diagrams. On the basis of imposed analysis claims it can be stated that elastic deformation component predominates while no plastic deformation exists at lower values of tensile force.
