A fabric can be considered as a porous medium, its porosity size and temperature will greatly affect air/moisture permeability and thermal comfort. This paper studies the effect of temperature on the capillary rise experimentally, the experimental data reveal that a higher temperature results in a higher capillary rise, as a result, a better air/moisture permeability is predicted. This paper elucidates also a higher temperature is favorable for effective washing.
