Abstract: The comfort and absorbing power of the cotton knitted fabric have been improved significantly by using bicomponent yarn , made up of 90% cotton fibres and 10% water-soluble compound, in place of 100% cotton yarn. After knitting, the fabric is subjected to washing treatment where water-soluble compound is dissolved, making the yarn in the fabric lighter, bulkier and softer. This results in the improvement of air permeability, absorbing power and feel of the fabric over that of 100% cotton knitted fabric.
