The main aim was to find out the influence of the blend ratio and linear density on the thermal comfort properties of regenerated bamboo cotton blended single jersey knitted fabrics. An increase in the regenerated bamboo fibre ratio in the fabric influences the thermal comfort properties. Knitted fabrics prepared from regenerated bamboo blended yarns have lesser thickness and inferior mass per square meter than cotton fabrics. The proportion of regenerated bamboo fibre increases in the yarn as the value of thermal conductivity decreases in knitted fabrics. Water vapour permeability and air permeability confirm a similar increase as the proportion of regenerated bamboo fibre increases. 100% regenerated bamboo fabrics have superior air permeability values compared with regenerated bamboo/cotton blended fabrics. The statistical investigation also showed that the results are significant for the thermal comfort properties of regenerated bamboo cotton knitted fabrics.

Abstract:

The main aim was to find out the influence of the blend ratio and linear density on the thermal comfort properties of regenerated bamboo cotton blended single jersey knitted fabrics. An increase in the regenerated bamboo fibre ratio in the fabric influences the thermal comfort properties. Knitted fabrics prepared from regenerated bamboo blended yarns have lesser thickness and inferior mass per square meter than cotton fabrics. The proportion of regenerated bamboo fibre increases in the yarn as the value of thermal conductivity decreases in knitted fabrics. Water vapour permeability and air permeability confirm a similar increase as the proportion of regenerated bamboo fibre increases. 100% regenerated bamboo fabrics have superior air permeability values compared with regenerated bamboo/cotton blended fabrics. The statistical investigation also showed that the results are significant for the thermal comfort properties of regenerated bamboo cotton knitted fabrics.
