WANG Ge-hui, ZHANG Wei-yuan (College of Fashion, Donghua University, Shanghai, 200051)
In this paper, the comfort of light-weight wool and wool blend woven fabrics was studied by conducting the wear trials under controlled climatic conditions. It was found that, under the neutral environmental conditions, the light-weight wool and wool blend fabrics were generally less comfortable than the silk fabric, cotton poplin and polyester/cotton fabrics tested in this study. The main shortcoming in terms of comfort for these light-weight wool fabrics is the prickle. Besides, the fabric softness was found to be an very important factor influencing the comfort of the clothing worn next to the skin.
