Improvement of Ecofriendly and Antibacterial Behaviors on Blended Knit Fabrics
Yarns (30/1 Ne) consisting of four different fibers were produced in different blends and knitted into single jersey fabrics. Antibacterial properties, water retention capacity, hydrophilicity, whiteness, and yellowness values of these fabrics were tested. Chitosan or lyocell fibers were added in mixtures, increasing the antibacterial activity, hydrophilicity, and water retention capacity of the resulting fabrics. Whiteness values of knitted fabrics produced from poly(lactic acid) (PLA) and lyocell fibers were quite high. Water retention capacity and hydrophilicity of these fabrics were better when compared to fabrics that included greige cotton fibers.
