|Abstract:||Effect of yarn linear density in the inner and outer layer of single jersey plated knits on heat and moisture transport and air permeability of resultant fabrics has been studied. These three factors all together determine the comfort of the wearer. Statistical analysis indicates that thermal resistance of the fabric increases significantly with increase in yarn linear density. Fabrics knitted with finer yarns and higher loop lengths are more permeable to air and water vapor and are found to have lower values of thermal absorptivity, thereby making them more suitable for use during hot and humid conditions.|
