The wearing comfort of socks can be affected by the fabric properties of liquid moisture management. The present study aims to investigate the relationship between the fabric parameters and moisture management of sock fabrics. The moisture management of socks fabric was measured by the moisture management tester according to AATCC 195-2012. It was found that the cotton sock fabrics were waterproof before washing. This May be due to hydrophobic treatment. The cotton material seems not to be suitable for moisture transfer.
