Abstract:

The moisture management properties of socks made from recycled polyester, virgin cotton and its blends were studied and compared. As an outcome of this research, the OMMC (Overall Moisture Management Capacity) of socks produced from recycled polyester fabrics gave higher values than those of virgin cotton fabrics. This result demonstrates that recycled polyester fabrics have good moisture management properties and faster water transport capacity compared to other fabrics. The lowest OMMC values were observed for virgin cotton fabrics.
