This study aims to provide an investigation regarding the effect of fibre cross-sectional shape, incorporated TiO2 amount (%) during polyester yarn production, and the weft density parameters respectively, on thermal comfort, moisture management, water vapour permeability, and air permeability properties of polyester drapery fabrics. Completely randomized three-factor analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted at the significance level of 0.05. SNK tests were also performed to observe the means of each parameter. Some of the weft yarn production parameters and the weft density (picks/cm) factors were found as significant factors in some thermal comfort and moisture management, water vapour, and air permeability properties of drapery samples.
