This study evaluated the effects of two independent variables thickness and weight on the five dependable variables air permeability, bursting strength, horizontal wicking, thermal insulation, and evaporative resistance. Five hypotheses were developed to test the relationship between jersey and interlock knits in different fiber contents. Mean (M), standard deviation (SD), t-test (t) and probability (p) were calculated to compare intra group impact. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Pearson Correlation and Regression Analysis were performed to determine the relationship between independent and dependent variables. Differences were found between two knit constructions with varying thickness and weight for air permeability, evaporative resistance, bursting strength, and horizontal wicking. Both positive and negative correlations were found between dependent and independent variables. Findings offer implications for future research.
