as the ability of fabric's hygroscopicity and
keeping dry. High-end moisture management fabrics
are decided by sophisticated materials such as fiber
or yarn. A fiber is the smallest visible unit of any
textile product. Fibers are flexible and may be spun
into yarn and made into fabrics.
There are many factors would
affect performance of fabrics, such as fiber shape,
yarn structure, weaves structure, density of fabric
per square meter and after dye process are major
factors. The fiber industries developed various
special sections for different purposes.
Most MMF has special knitting
designed structure on two surfaces, which fabric is
able to transfer moisture from inner surface to
outer surface and keep the skin dry and comfortable.
As MMF has become one of the
key performance criteria in today's sportswear
industry, a new method called the moisture
management tester is developed to evaluate textile
moisture management properties. This new method can
be used to quantitatively measure a fabric's one way
transport capacity and its overall moisture
Taiwan, the King of Knitting
