A study on knitting parameters and thermal comfort and moisture properties of cellulosic fabrics
MetadataShow full item record
Lyocell is a form of rayon produced from cellulose fiber made from dissolving pulp (bleached wood pulp). In this paper, rayon, more commonly known as Lyocell, based plain single jersey knitted fabrics were produced with different knitting parameters (loop lengths 0.8, 0.9, and 1.0 cm). The thermal comfort properties of the fabrics were tested and analyzed in terms of thermal comfort properties including thermal conductivity, thermal resistance, thermal absorbtivity, water vapour permeability, and heat loss. © 2015 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
