Abstract

© Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.This paper investigated moisture related comfort properties of woven fabrics from natural cellulosic fibers, namely cotton, linen, and Crailar. The comfort properties of the fabrics were measured in accordance with the relevant standards, and the results were comparatively discussed. In addition to that, Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) together with Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was employed to determine the most preferable fabric based on comfort properties.
