Abstract: The effect of using a tetra channel cross-section polyester fibre with and without microslits on its surface in place of cotton in a polyester/cotton (P/C) blended yarn fabric has been studied. The results have been compared with P/C blended yarn fabrics. It is observed that the modified cross-section polyester generally shows better performance with respect to drapability, crease recovery, bending rigidity, air permeability, thermal insulation and wicking behaviour as compared to P/C blended fabrics in temperate weather.
