Abstract: The effect of yarn twist on the wicking rate of cotton interlock weft knitted fabrics has been studied. It is observed that using the yarn linear density of 30tex, the wicking rate decreases with an increase in the amount of yarn twist. An equation ‘h=cT+d’ is found to be a good estimate of the maximum wicking height (h) for cotton interlock weft knitted fabrics measured over yarn twist (T). Also, an equation ‘h=atk+bt’ which is a modified version of Washburn-Laughlin’s equation, is a good estimate of wicking height (h) for these fabrics measured over time (t).
