Hand or Handle
Hand or handle is how the fabric feels. This is a very subjective judgment of the feel of a fabric, and it should help decide if a fabric is suitable for a specific end use. The hand may be the crisp, soft, drape-able, smooth, springy, stiff, cool, warm, rough, hard, limp, soap. Finishing and garment wash affected the last handle of a fabric.
