Abstract

The fine gauge plain weft knitted fabrics knitted from cotton Sirospun1 yarns are more durable and suitable for summer wear. It was found that they have considerable bursting strength, superior abrasion resistance, superior pilling resistance, greater air resistance, cooler hand‐feel and greater thermal conductivity than the fabrics knitted from two‐fold yarns. The plain weft knitted fabric composed of coarser Sirospun1 yarn is also better in terms of hand‐feel measured by KES instruments.
