In recent years, people have become more and more demanding for the comfort, health, safety and environmental protection of jacquard fabrics. With the increase of people's outdoor activities time, the trend of mutual penetration and integration of casual wear and sportswear is increasingly favored by consumers. At the same time, the tooling of the personnel engaged in manual labor also puts forward the comfort requirements for the fabric.

The fabric of this type of clothing requires that when there is sweating and squatting during the activity, the garment will not stick to the skin and produce a sense of cold and humidity. As a result, new requirements for the moisture wicking function of the fabric were put forward, and the moisture wicking fabric was delivered.As we all know, natural fiber uses cotton as an example. It has good moisture absorption performance and comfortable wearing, but its wrinkle-retaining shape retention and water conductivity are poor.

When the amount of sweating is slightly larger, the cotton fiber will expand due to moisture absorption, and its luck will drop. Sticking to the skin, at the same time, the water distribution speed is also slower, which gives the human body a sense of cold and humidity. The synthetic fiber represented by polyester has poor hygroscopicity due to the lack of hydrophilic groups. In the process of using people, the moisture emitted by the human body is difficult to be transmitted through the polyester fabric, and it is easy to cause sultry discomfort.

The moisture wicking fabric fiber has a high specific surface area, and the fiber surface has many micropores or fibril gaps and surface grooves communicating inside and outside, so that moisture easily enters between the fibers, and at the same time, there are many tubular grooves along the fiber axis direction. The groove or capillary provides a channel for the migration of moisture, so the fiber has good water absorption and does not swell due to water absorption after water absorption. The moisture between the fibers is mainly held by the fibers by a large amount of microporous capillary attraction, or mechanically held in the capillary between the fibers, and the moisture is easily transported to the surface of the fibers to volatilize at normal ambient temperature.
