Özet

In need of improving the properties of textiles, researchers investigate how to obtain surface with better mechanical and physical characteristics. On the other hand, for clothing purposes, it is also required to enhance comfort properties. However, uniting these properties in the end product is difficult. For this objective, new fibers those allow what is desired are developed. This is one of the easiest ways. Because, if these characteristics can be found on the raw material, less treatments will be needed for gaining wanted surface quality. Another way is producing yams that could enable end products with better mechanical, physical and comfort properties. For these "new yams", some of the production parameters can be changed or modified. As another way fibers can be blended, which is preferred in this study. The main aim is to evaluate the effect of kapok fibers on fabric properties. For this aim, kapok fibers were blended with three most common fibers: Tencel, PET and Cotton.
