|Abstract:||The effect of fibre composition on moisture management properties and peak heat flux (qmax) values of one commercial sport garment and six knitted fabrics (sportswear), composed of 100% polyester, 100% cotton, 100% modal, and blend of polyester with cotton and modal, have been investigated. The moisture management properties are assessed by using the moisture management tester, and the feeling of coldness or warmth is assessed by measuring qmax value on KES-F7 Thermo labo II. Blending polyester fibre with cotton and modal has improved moisture management properties of the fabrics in comparison to 100% polyester fabric. qmax study also indicates that polyester/cotton and polyester/modal blend fabrics are cooler as compared to 100 % polyester fabric.|
