Abstract:

This study examined how fibre and fabric properties affect the drying time of a wide range of textile materials. It was found that the drying time of a fabric is independent of its fibre type and thus regain, but dependent on the amount of water initially in the fabric which depends to a great extent on the thickness of the fabric. Textiles, Regain, Hydrophobicity, Hydrophilicity, Drying.
