What Construction to Use to Get 110 GSM Fabric in Rayon?

One OCS reader asked this question: "I need to source rayon fabric 45s fabric that has at least 110gsm. How best should I achieve this? I have heard of people say that (1) achieve it through 100x80 construction but using your computation, it seems that i will not be able to achieve it (2) to do some sort of wash finish (since rayon shrinks) to achieve this."

Pulak Debnath, fabric sourcing expert of a garment export house answered this question with recommendation:
45s count is not regular, instead of 45s  he  recommend to use 40s. 40s count and 92X80 construction will give 110GSM in finished fabric. But after wash GSM will increase by 5-7% as viscose will shrink.
