In order to study the influence of anti-mite and antibacterial fibers content on the anti-mite property of fabrics, yarns of antibacterial moisture absorption & perspiration elimination fibers, photocatalytic moisture absorption & perspiration elimination fibers and their blended yarns with hemp fiber, bamboo fiber, Tencel, cotton fiber were selected, and six sets of samples were manufactured. The anti-mite properties of these six fabrics were tested with the repellent method and analyzed, the relationship between the content of these two anti-mite and antibacterial fibers and the anti-mite property of fabrics was obtained. The experimental results indicated that with the content of anti-mite and antibacterial fibers increasing, the anti-mite property of fabrics improved gradually. When the content of antibacterial moisture absorption & perspiration elimination fiber was 100%, the repellent rate of the fabric for dust mite was 80.51%; when the ratio of photocatalytic moisture absorption & perspiration elimination fiber and bamboo fiber in fabric was 65/35, the repellent rate of the fabric for dust mite reached to 82.05%, the two kinds of fabrics both owned better anti-mite performance. The conclusions from this research can be used as a reference to design and develop fabrics for home textiles with better anti-mite effect and comfortability.
