Moisture transport in woven fabrics containing cotton fibers
MetadataShow full item record
Cotton is currently the most commonly used raw material of natural origin in a production of clothing. Due to its very good hygroscopic properties, it is also often used in production of underwear, bandages etc. A liquid moisture transport plays a crucial role in shaping a physiological comfort. As part of this study 2 pairs of woven fabrics containing cotton fibers with twill 3/1 S weaves were tested in the range of their ability to moisture transport in the form of liquid. Moisture transport is the fabric's ability to wick moisture away from the body. The investigation were carried out on the Moisture Management Tester. The investigations allowed to assess the moisture transport of individual fabrics.
