In this work ,The thermal comfort properties of polyester and bamboo blended woven fabrics have been studied in relation to %of component fibers in blends ,pick density and weave .The objective was to determine the influence of fabric factors such as the constituent fibers ,pick density and weave characteristics on the fabrics properties such as air permeability ,relative water vapour permeability ,thermal resistance ,water absorbency time and wicking .thermal comfort characteristics of plain and twill woven fabrics made of 2/30s Ne bamboo in warp and 30s Ne 100% bamboo ,polyester/bamboo blended yarns have been studied .The fabric characteristics such as air permeability ,thermal resistance ,relative water vapour permeability ,water absorbency time and wicking related to comfort characteristics are discussed. The experimental results show that 2/30s ne bamboo in warp direction of twill fabrics with 60picks per inch exhibits higher wick ability as well as higher relative water vapour permeability when compared to other samples. 30s Ne polyester/bamboo (70/30) blended in weft direction of twill fabrics with 64 picks per inch show very higher thermal resistances and air permeability than other samples .And 100% bamboo in warp direction of twill fabrics with 60picks per inch show less water absorbency time than other samples.
