What is "Condition (v)" - Definition & Explanation

a) To allow textile materials (raw materials, fibres, slivers, yarns and fabrics) to come to hygroscopic equilibrium with the surrounding atmosphere, or with the standard atmosphere for testing (q.v.)

b) to add relatively small quantities of water to textile materials (raw materials, fibres, slivers, yarns and fabrics).
