ABSTRACT

The work reported in this paper is the resultant highlights of thermal properties of 100 % conventional cotton and 100% organic cotton based single jersey, 1×1 rib and interlock structures. The selected thermal properties of samples knitted fabric structured were measured. The results indicate that each knitted structure shows distinguished thermal comfort properties. Interlock and 1×1 rib fabrics have a greater thermal conductivity and thermal resistance value and thus better for winter garment products. On the other hand, single jersey fabrics of both conventional and organic cotton have greater moistures management properties with higher relative water vapour permeability values than 1×1 rib and interlock fabrics, and give a warmer feeling and hence more fruitful and could be chosen for active sports and summer apparel products.
