Abstract: A technique based on electrical open and closed circuit principle has been used to measure the vertical capillary height of the liquid in the fabric as the function of time. Vertical wicking height for different types of fabrics with different yarn counts and fabric densities is observed. It is found that the yarn count and fabric density influence the wicking behavior of the fabrics.
