Abstract:

Article Preview

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.
