Effect of blend ratio on moisture management characteristics of regenerated bamboo/lotus single jersey knitted fabrics


Ananthi, P ; Jemina Rani, P C; Prakash, C


The moisture management properties of the pique knitted fabrics produced from lotus fibre fabrics have been evaluated by SDL- ATLAS moisture management tester and correlated with regenerated bamboo pique knitted fabrics. It is observed that the lotus fabric shows absorption rate similar to that of regenerated bamboo fabric, whereas bamboo lotus blended fabric shows improved spreading speed and one way transport capability than the other fabrics. The lotus fabric exhibits high dimensional stability and the high resistance to pilling. It shows that lotus fabrics are suitable for clothing applications.
