The aim of this research paper is to produce woven cloth with good hand feel and with enhanced thermal resistance property. The construction of double cloth is useful where the development of thermal insulation value of a fabric with a fine appearance is essential. Double weaves are categorized by harness floats in paired or greater combinations on a face and altered paired or greater float combinations on the back. Double cloth is aesthetic in intension for that purpose the existence of two series of threads in every way develops the capacity for creating complicated properties depending upon both colour and structural variations. In double weave, the two cloths are connected where they change faces to form pattern generally in one colour against background. Air permeability, thermal conductivity and some other properties are tested and discussed in this research which provides and comfortability to the wearer of double cloth. Loose construction showed higher air permeability those were useful for the body. Compact fabrics with compact structure show less thermal conductivity values which resists the temperature to pass fast so that wearer will feel warm. Denser constructions showed less shrinkage with higher strength due to compactness in the structures.
