Full Length Research Paper
Water absorbency and color fastness to perspiration, seawater and washing of modal terry woven fabrics were studied in this research. Weft and warp yarns were produced from 100% cotton and pile yarns were produced from 500% modalcotton blended yarn. Terry woven fabrics were produced in five different pile heights. Water absorbency and color fastness tests were carried out on fabrics. It was determined that sinking time of the terry woven fabrics decreased with the increase in pile height. It was observed that wicking height of terry woven fabrics increase by decreasing the weft density of fabrics. It was established that modal towels dyed with reactive dyestuff showed high levels of color fastness.
Key words: Modal terry fabric, water absorbency, color fastness.
