Is this because we think more is always better? Does a test of 1,000,000 WZ guarantee that your fabric will survive years longer than one rated only 100,000 WZ? Maripaul Yates, in her guidebook for interior designers, says that results are so unreliable and the margin of error is so great that its competency as a predictor of actual wear is questionable.
