Abstract

Liquid water transport properties of fabrics are important to clothing comfort. This study shows that triple-layer fabrics with a bottom layer made of longer float structure tend to have better absorption and wicking property, while triple layer fabrics made by the self-stitching method have better initial absorption and those made by the yarn interchanging method have better surface evaporation after wet saturation.
