Poster summary

Clothing comfort is the first and foremost property of the fabric considered by consumers, especially in apparel. As the under-wear fabrics come in direct contact with the skin so it demands better chafe resistance properties. Better comfort and frictional properties in the under-wear fabrics are one of important requirements. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of the different blends (%) of cotton, Coolmax, and micro polyester fibers and two linear densities i.e., 24/1s and 30/1s (Ne/English count) on the friction and comfort properties of the knitted underwear. It is concluded that a combination of natural and synthetic fibers with finer linear density results in better-performing fabrics with regard to friction and moisture management. Sample containing 50% cotton and 50% micro-polyester with 30/1s yarn count was declared as the best samples based on the Grey Relational Analysis which is a multi-response optimization technique.
