In this paper, values of deformation components (elastic, viscoelastic, plastic) of clothing wool fabrics by measuring the crease recovery angle in various directions to the warp direction (0°-warp, 30°, 45°, 60°, and 90°-weft) were determined. The size as well as the change of deformation component from warp to weft direction was presented through polar diagrams. On the basis of the results of investigation it is possible to conclude that all investigated fabrics (plain, 2/2 twill, cross twill), regardless of the biaxiality concerning quickly reversible (elastic) deformation, tend toward isotropy in total reversible deformation (elastic + viscoelastic). Concerning the plastic deformation value, mentioned investigated fabrics also express tendency toward isotropy.
