Paper Title:
Moisture Management Performance of Multifunctional Yarns Based on Wool Fibers
  Abstract

Blends of wool and moisture management fibres such as Coolmax and Finecool have been prepared to produce innovative yarns with specific functionalities. These yarns have been used to produce knitted fabrics and their performance was evaluated, including vertical and horizontal wicking. The influence of wool fibre proportion on the performance of each blend is analyzed. It is observed that the Coolmax based fabrics show the best capillarity performance, and the wool fibre based fabrics show lower water absorption performance.
