Abstract

The dimensional and physical properties of 3-D fabrics produced using different loop lengths and yarn combinations of cotton and polyester on electronic flat knitting machines have been studied. It is observed that the yarn combination, tightness and washing treatment affect the fabric properties. In addition, while the tightness of fabric increases or when the samples are washed, the course spacing, wale spacing, weight and thickness of the fabric increase and the air permeability decreases.
