UV (ultraviolet) protective clothing (textiles) is important for the public. This study focused on the impact of fiber parameters on UV protection of textiles. It sought to understand how the light goes through different fibers. Significant effects of fiber parameters on UV protection of textiles were shown by statistical analysis. Fabricevoked prickle was also included in this study to reach the aim of achieving textiles with both high UV protection and good tactile comfort.
