Linings are textiles used to cover the inner side of the garments. They are functional parts of the garment, and are used to maintain the shape of the garment, to improve the comfort of the wearer, to cover the inside of the garment of complex construction. In order to investigate and compare physical properties of commonly used lining fabrics, 9 different lining fabrics were supplied for the experiment. The data obtained from the experiments was evaluated statistically. In the scope of the results, the effects of fabric density, yarn count and material type on properties of the lining fabrics were analyzed and compared. Lining fabrics which are denser and include thicker yarns have smoother surfaces, lower air permeability and higher tensile strength. 100% acetate fabrics were found smoother than 100% polyester fabric, whereas the tensile strength results were found opposite. Increasing density and yarn count in lining fabric structure caused an increase in the thickness values of linings.
