Answer to an old post by Opticsman

Hello . I am looking for a list which compares the moisture absorbtion values of textile yarns ( synthetic and organic).  Rayon and bamboo appear as highly absorbent yarns when i do an online search but I would ideally like to see a table listing various yarns if possible. My main interest is to find the highest absorbing yarns but nice to be able to compare with a range of other yarns. I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions. many thanks in advance, Opticsman.  

**** as far as synthetic yarns go check out yarns made from MCP fiber that Wellman was making before they went under... It is a unique porous PET fiber... I think the product is being made now by David C Poole Co.
