The Comparison of the Thermal Behaviour of Leisure and Sports Clothing Using Conventional and New Textile Materials
This work reports on research being carried out in the area of functional knitted fabrics with a special structure incorporating hydrophobic fibres near to the skin and suction channels of hydrophilic fibres to suck moisture from the skin on the hydrophilic layer away from the skin; in this way, comfort is maximised in active wear as the fabric does not feel wet near to the skin.
