The study examined selected performance attributes of three knit structures in different fiber contents. Several AATCC and ASTM standards were used to compare interlock, jersey and pique knits. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the data. Analysis of variance (ANOVA), t-tests, and descriptive statistics were used to analyse the data. Findings revealed that textiles in different fiber contents and structures did not perform similarly for the selected performance attributes. Possibilities for future extension and relevance of the yielded results was highlighted. Implications of the findings refining and extending the existing knowledge of textile and apparel manufacturers, retailers, and consumers for care, comfort and appearance were highlighted.
