Water vapor permeability is a critical parameter in textile fabric comfort evaluation as it represents the ability of the fabric to transfer perspiration coming out of the human body. Clothing materials with high water vapor permeability allow the human body to take advantage of its ability to provide cooling due to the sweat production and evaporation. The influence of several factors such as the fabric structure, thickness, porosity and fiber type on water vapor permeability of common clothing materials was observed by previous researchers. The main objective of this study was to analyze the influence of yarn properties on water vapor permeability of plain knitted fabrics. The range of various yarn structures was obtained by applying different twist intensity during spinning. From three various twisted cotton yarns the knitted fabrics were produced under controlled conditions. Water vapor permeability and air permeability of the knitted fabrics were measured. The results obtained indicated the complex impact of the yarn core and surface geometry on water vapor permeability of plain knitted fabrics. The hairiness of yarn was proved as the parameter with great potential in terms of the water vapor transfer.
