Describes an investigation into the sensation of wetness and dampness by both subjective and objective measurements. When fabric has a high water content, the subject felt a strong feeling of stickiness. This stickiness was evaluated objectively by measurement of the friction between the wet fabric and artificial skin. The speed of moisture transmission measured by the simulation test is one of the parameters used to evaluate the clammy feeling.
