Abstract:

Most of the time, a certain degree of stretch prominently and incrementally occurs in intimate wear, leisure wear, sportswear, medical textiles etc., during their action. Variations in the stretch gradient would definitely cause changes in the air permeability of knitted fabrics. The influence of variables such as loop length, the presence of an elastomeric component and fabric structure on the air permeability of cotton single jersey and pique knitted fabrics in a stretched state was critically analysed. In this work, changes in the air permeability of cotton jersey samples with and without elastomer were investigated and reported by keeping the samples in static up to an incremental stretch of 40% at a rate of 10% of the stretch gradient, in a dry relaxed state, wet relaxed state and fully relaxed state.
