soakability


Explanation:
I would prefer "soakability" over "wetability" although - please note that none of these words is specifically mentioned in the main dictionaries I searched. There may be a technical word for this quantity, such as "water absorption index", or not. "Soakability" may be not the best, but it will be understood correctly.
