Abstract:

In order to study the heat and moisture comfort, the wicking property of textiles has been used as an important and effective index. In this paper, the wicking behaviour of cotton fabric in the warp and weft directions was investigated in terms of the wicking height, rate of wicking, mass increment distribution per centimetre of the wicking height, and the durative wicking height after removal of the wicking liquid reservoir. The results showed that the wicking height square had a good correlation with the time in both the warp and weft directions. The wicking rate was higher in the weft direction than that in the warp, especially at the beginning of the wicking process. The mass increment of fabric per centimetre of the wicking height was inversely proportional to the wicking height; the mass of water absorbed in the fabric did not have a significant difference in the weft and warp directions.
