Main Article Content
Comfort properties of clothing are one of the main indicators of clothing quality and have been widely investigated in the past decades. This research concentrates on the water vapour permeability of nylon pantyhose, by examining behaviours in the relaxed state, as well as under extension of knits of 100 %, comparative to wear conditions and above 100 %. Permetest apparatus was used to measure the water vapour permeability according to the standard ISO 11092. The results indicate that for very fine fabrics permeability stays constant under extension, while for fabrics above 44 dtex the water vapour permeability changes significantly with extension.
