Abstract

Moisture management is a critical feature of any sportswear, as it improves the fabric's comfort level. Comfort differs from person to person depending upon the perception of the wearer. Comfort is the relation between a psychological and physiological behavior of the wearer. The moisture transmission of the fabric is the key determinant of thermophysiological comfort. The moisture management features of trilayer knitted fabrics constructed of a range of yarns on the inner and outer sides, including micro denier filament polyester, Monofilament, wool, bamboo, and cotton, are examined in this article. The sample B/MDPF/C, which included an inner layer of bamboo, a middle layer of Micro denier Filament polyester, and an outer layer of cotton shows appreciable moisture management property, providing an excellent comfort nature due to its appreciable property required for a moisture management fabric.
