Modified cellulose (tencel, modal and bamboo) lycra plated single jersey knitted fabrics have been developed with two different loop lengths (2.7mm and 3.4mm) and with different lycra plating (without plating, half plating and full plating), along with the cotton fabrics of same variables. The test results of moisture management properties prove that the overall moisture management capability (OMMC) values of 3.4mm tencel fabric without lycra have the highest value and exhibit an excellent grade in the moisture management test (MMT) chart. This is attributed to the low wetting time, higher bottom absorption rate, higher value of maximum wetted radius and spreading speed and accumulative one-way transport index (AOTI) value. It is also found that the value of OMMC decreases with the increase in elastane content and increases with the increase in loop length. Further, it is also observed that all the developed fabrics fall under the category of good to excellent grades in MMT indices.
