Abstract

In this study, the thermal properties of 100% cotton, 50/50 cotton/bamboo and 100% bamboo single jersey fabrics with differing yarn linear density are evaluated and analysed. The linear densities of the yarns composing the fabrics are 20s, 25s, 30s Nec and the twist level in the yarns is kept the same. An increasing the presence of bamboo fibre in the fabric causes a reduction in fabric thickness and GSM for all linear densities of yarn. Air permeability and water-vapour permeability also increase with increase in bamboo fibre content while both thermal conductivity and thermal resistance show a decreasing trend. As the constituent yarn gets finer, fabric air and water-vapour permeability both increase in value while the thermal conductivity falls.
