Design Principles for Knitted Items with Bicomponent Cloths

  • O. Yu. Gorokhova

The properties defining the target purpose of functional clothing in addition to the construction and external appearance requirements are dominant factors in its fabrication. For example, sports apparel should even out temperature drops of the body and wick water away from it well. An analysis showed that such attire could be produced if the sides of the item were made of a different kind of thread or yarn. Items made of bicomponent cloths can economize raw material by combining different cloths in a single item. The material outlays for the items could be reduced by using bicomponent cloths in several of their parts.
