Aesthetic and functional properties are the most important requirements that the consumer needs of clothing during use in daily activities. Nowadays, Sportswear based on natural fibers and biodegradable fabrics are mostly considered for knitted fabrics and clothing designs with a sustainable consumer manner. Collagen peptide added fibres are recently regenerated to enhance cellulosic fibres which are known to be providing a skin friendly texture. This research aims to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of two knitted fabrics to be able to estimate and compare the performance for these fabrics during practice various sports activities. The research samples made of 100 % Umorfil and 100 % Cotton. Some performance properties were evaluated such as, Tenacity, Elongation, Pilling, air permeability, bursting strength, water vapor permeability, Bacterial and microbe resistant test and UV Resistance test. The result shows that the Umorfil fabric is perfect for sportswear as it absorbs the sweat easily and allows the air flow due to its high air permeability.
