Abstract


This research focuses on making double-layer complex wrapped yarn using stainless steel fiber (S), rayon yarn, and PET bamboo charcoal yarn in rotor twister. During the process, the twisting speed of the rotor twister was changed. The functional complex thermal-regulating/wicking conductive wrapped yarn of different twisting speeds (2~6 turns/cm) were fabricated using the Fully Computerized Hosiery Machine. The effects of different twisting speeds on the far-infrared emissivity, air permeability, and water absorption of the functional complex thermal-regulating/wicking conductive wrapped yarn were discussed. In the end, the functional knitted fabrics and hosiery with thermal-regulating/wicking conductive properties were made.
