Nowdays consumers are being more conscious and careful about their health and living style. Consumers tend to be more careful about clothing comfort particularly functionality of the clothing worn by them. Comfort contributes to all essential factors viz., physical, psychological, mental and social wellbeing. If clothing worn does not serve its purpose it creates the hindrance in our working efficiency. Thus in order to study the comfort properties of the developed union fabrics, cloth air permeability, cloth thermal insulation values and cloth wick up test method were studied and the results indicated that, union fabrics possessed better comfort properties than the cotton × cotton fabrics (control). Whereas, lesser the yarn counts better thermal insulation value of union fabrics and higher the yarn counts better the air permeability. Similarly, irrespective of different counts and different yarns used, the wicking behaviour of all the fabrics increased with increase in wicking time. Thus this study depicts that use of bamboo and tencel for developing union fabrics with cotton tends to have better comfort properties and as it is noted better comfort enhances the wearers physiological and mental well being which further enhances their personality and also their working efficiency.
Key words: Comfort, Bamboo, Tencel, Cotton.
