Özet

The behavior of a textile during its contact with liquid and removal of this liquid from the body surface are the important parameters to determine the wearer comfort. In this study, drying and wicking properties of knitted fabrics made from meryl skinlife and tactel fibers were investigated. Conventional nylon fiber was also added to the study to compare the comfort properties of these special fibers. The samples were piece dyed under commercial conditions and then half of them washed five times and finally flat dried. Liquid transporting and drying properties of dyed samples were compared with dyed&washed ones. ANOVA evaluation and independent t-test were used to evaluate the results.
