Abstract:

Functional knitted fabric is developing fast, claiming moisture management, quick drying and so on through post finishing and treatment, the fabric texture design, and fiber selection. The present study focuses on the role played by connecting yarn, which bridges the two layers of knitted double-layer fabric, in the fabric liquid water transfer and distribution performance, investigating the effects of the hygroscopicity of connecting yarn in three dimensions. It was found that, compared with ordinary cotton yarn, cotton and polyester blended yarn, as connecting yarn, can significantly increase the moisture management ability of the fabric; compared with ordinary polyester yarn, modified polyester, with higher hygroscopicity, can improve the liquid water transfer ability of the fabric.
