Abstract:

This study is a continuation of an experimental investigation to determine one of the comfort properties – static water absorption. The influence of knits from natural yarns and yarns plated with stretch thread on static water absorption is discussed. It was determined that higher water absorption is characteristic for knits from pure yarns, lower – for knits with textured polyamide thread, and the lowest - for knits with elastane thread. It was found that a higher tightness factor causes the worst water absorption. The variation of water absorption depending on the area density and thickness of plain and plated plain knits were discused.˙
