Abstract: Ordinary thermal underwear fabrics only prevent the loss of heat, and the sultry and cold and moist feeling caused by sweating of the human body reduces the comfort of the garment. The paper discusses the design and production of a thermal and wicking duplex sheeting, which uses the TopCool® moisture wicking fiber to increase the moisture wicking function of the fabric to keep the skin dry; and SunLite® hollow thermal fiber to improve the fabric’s thermal performance. And double-sided fleece increases the thickness and bulkiness of the fabric. Through reasonable design and weaving process, the fabric is given the advantages of warmth and wicking, fashion and comfort as well as good shape retention, so as to meet the consumer demand for high-grade thermal underwear fabrics.

Key words: thermal and wicking; double-sided fleece; fashion and comfort
