In this study, thermal properties of 60%/40% & 80%/20% Cotton/Polyester and 100% Cotton fleece fabrics were investigated. It is known that Cotton fiber has good comfort properties and Polyester fiber is especially known for its strength, anti-wrinkle, anti-mildew, whiteness. The aim of this study was to determine the most thermally comfortable combination of these two fibres among the three most used common blend ratios of these two. First, cotton and Polyester fibers spun with different blend ratios standard spinning systems. Then, three thread fleece fabrics were produced with these yarns having 60%/40% and 80%/20% Cotton/Polyester and 100% Cotton and the thermal comfort parameters of fabrics were measured on Standard devices. The three-fleece fabric only varied in yarn composition. And all other parameters were the same for all three. The results indicated that the 80%/20% Cotton/Polyester has the most desired thermal comfort properties.
