Study on Wearability of Multi-Component Blended Fabrics
In order to study the wearability of multi-component blended fabrics, there are 9 kinds of fabrics which belong to A, B and C three series were woven. They were blended with different proportions e.g. PTT, PLA, Cooldry, triangular shaped polyester yarn, cotton, hemp, viscose, conductive filament, and so on. Anti-pilling property, crease recovery, drapability, moisture transmission and air permeability of the fabrics were tested and analyzed. From the test results, following conclusions can be gotten. 1) The anti-pilling property is good for fabrics with tighter weave construction; 2) The crease recovery is good for fabrics with smaller weft density; 3) The moisture permeability is good for fabrics with smaller tightness; 4) The crease resistance, drapability, moisture permeability and air permeability of the fabrics can be improved by looser weave construction and smaller binding point.
