Abstract:

For investigation of the moisture management properties of bi-layer knitted fabrics, a special knitting structure made of the same or different combinations of yarns of cotton, polypropylene, Microdenier polyester and polyester staple fibre on the face and reverse sides fibre was studied. Moisture management properties, which determine the warm-cool feeling, of the fabrics produced were determined and statistical analysis made. The results indicated that the Microdenier polyester (inner) – Microdenier polyester (outer) fabric had a better moisture management property, providing high levels of comfort, and is recommended for summer, active and sportswear. The results were discussed together with one-way ANOVA test results at a 0.05 significance level. The results indicate that the Microdenier polyester yarn inner and outer layer of bi-layer knitted fabric shows a better moisture management property due to its appreciable wetting radius, as well its good absorption rate, wetting time and spreading speed of sweat, thus exhibiting a very higher level of the comfort property.
