|Abstract:||The effects of spinning conditions on the comfort characteristics of woven cotton fabrics have been investigated. It is observed that the comfort characteristics of cotton fabrics are greatly influenced by the yarn structural variants. The yarn structure has a large effect on the fabric comfort. Twist factor and spindle speed influence the fabric comfort by modifying the yarn hairiness, packing coefficient and diameter. In woven fabrics, a systematic increase in spinning draft substantially alters the air and water vapour permeabilities and hence, the comfort level. For all experimental combinations, the compact-spun yarn fabrics possess poor thermal resistance, better air & water vapour permeabilities, and lower wickability & absorbency than the ring-spun yarn fabrics.|
