In this work, the thermal comfort properties of bamboo & bamboo blended women’s head scarves that are worn by females during sports events activities have been investigated. Comfort can be described by the physically relaxed state that is devoid from any pain. Single jersey knitted fabrics samples were produced with the same loop-length from three different types of fibres. The three fibres types were bamboo, cotton, polyester microfiber and their blends with various feeder arrangements. Linear density of bamboo and cotton yarns were 30/1 Ne. Polyester microfiber yarns with Liner density 150 D/144f were used. Results showed that even with same blend ratios, the arrangement of the yarns inside the fabric has an effect on fabric thickness. Moreover, bamboo fabrics scored the lowest weight due to their low specific density, which greatly enhances the comfort levels compared to the other samples. Results obtained show that, Bamboo samples have excelled properties in term of thermal conductivity and Qmax tests compared to other samples
