Moisture management is the ability of a fabric to transport moisture away from the skin to the garment outer surface in multi-dimensions and it is one of key performance criteria in today textiles for garments for various end uses. This property has a significant effect on the human perception of moisture sensations as well as the growth of microorganisms.
