Effect of blend ratio and single, double and plated yarn on moisture management properties of bamboo/cotton jersey knitted fabrics

Prakash, C ; Karunakaran, K C

Abstract

Effect of bamboo/cotton blend ratio on the moisture management properties of single, double and plated yarn singlejersey knitted fabrics has been studied. The moisture management properties of the fabrics are measured by SDL-ATLASmoisture management tester. Absorption rate, wetting time, maximum wetted radius, spreading speeds, one-waytransportation capability and overall moisture management capacity are measured and discussed. The results show that thebamboo composition has a significant influence on moisture management properties.
