Abstract : This invention relates to woven textile fabrics useful in fabricating permeable, flame-resistant, toxic chemical-agent protective clothing. The fabric is woven from aromatic polyamide yarns and carbon yarns having a carbon tetrachloride vapor sorption capacity of at least 15 percent by weight. The carbon yarns are uniformly distributed throughout the fabric in an amount sufficient to provide at least 12 milligrams of carbon yarn for each square centimeter of fabric.
