This study aims to examine the effect of their construction and yarn properties of single and double layer woven fabrics on fabric air permeability (AP), water vapour permeability (WVP) and thermal resistance (TR) properties. For this purpose, single and double layered cotton/PES fabrics were weaved, and physical performance tests were fulfilled. Permeability properties of all fabrics were analysed with statistically and artificial neural networks, and compared to each other. Useful equations for estimation comfort properties of fabrics before weaving have been obtained by using regression and artificial neural networks. The focus of this work is to determine the comfort characteristics of the fabrics to be produced from these fibres, which have superior properties and are valuable in terms of Eco-textile before they are produced.
