Knitted fabrics with a wide range of fabric construction varying in fibre type, yarn type is frequently preferred by consumers owing to their high comfort properties. Today new, functional and biodegradable, natural fibre based raw materials are mostly considered for knitted fabrics and clothing designs with a sustainable consumer manner. Collagen peptide added fibres are the recent improved regenerated cellulosic fibres which are known to be providing a skin friendly texture with high thermal and moisture comfort. Within this study, some performance properties such as thermal properties, water vapour permeability, water vapour resistance, air permeability as well as bursting strength of greige and dyed knitted samples made of 100 % Tencel™, Modal, Cupro, Umorfil®, combed cotton and carded cotton yarn were evaluated. ANOVA test was performed for the statistical evaluation of yarn and fabric properties. According to ANOVA results, regenerated cellulosic yarn type of knitted fabrics and the process type (untreated greige fabric or dyed fabric) were generally significant factors on mentioned performance properties of knitted fabrics. The results of experiments also revealed that beside the regenerated cellulosic fibres, new developed collagen peptide added Umorfil® fibre may be used as the raw material of knitted fabrics for sport garments with satisfying comfort results.
