Abstract

A composite textile fabric (30) for wicking moisture away from the skin of the wearer and transporting moisture from its skin-side surface to the opposite surface. The fabric includes a first fabric layer (12) which has been rendered hydrophilic in order to quickly wick perspiration and other body fluids away from the body surface of the user, and is constructed of fibers of a relatively high denier; and a second fabric layer (22) which has been rendered hydrophilic, and is constructed of fibers of a relatively low denier in order to pull perspiration and other body fluids from the first fabric layer.
