Fancy entwining and Curved Twill

fabric weaving Fancy entwining twill effects are obtained by omitting one or more twill lines from each section and continuing the remaining twill lines of each section until they meet these of the other section. By this it means that two blank spaces are made in the weave, in which other weaves may be inserted. Curved twills are those in which the twill lines have a wavy, or curved, nature instead of being perfectly straight as in an ordinary twill weave. There are two methods of constructing these weaves,

Fabric Cutting Standards

apparel apparel-making Where large quantities of a garment style must be cut, a lay is created which consists of many plies of fabric spread one above the other. From this, all the garment pieces for all the sizes that have been planned for that lay are cut. The pattern shapes for these garments may be drawn on a paper marker placed on top of the lay, or information as to their shape and position may be held within a computer, to be plotted similarly on a paper marker or used to drive an automatic cutter. Therefore ce

Sheep Wool

fiber Wool is the fibrous covering from sheep and is by far the most important animal fibre used in textiles. It appears to have been the earliest fibre to be spun and woven into cloth.

Acrylic the Artificial Wool Fibers

fiber Acrylic can be thought of as artificial wool. It is made from the unlikely combination of coal, air, water, oil and limestone.

Ticketing and Bar-coding

apparel Retailers request that manufacturers supply them with ?hanger ready? garments; in other words, the garments must be pre-ticketed with bar-coded price tags attached and hung on the hangers the retailers will use

Natural Fibres

fiber All fibres which come from natural sources (animals, plants, etc.) and do not require fibre formation or reformation are classed as natural fibres. The natural fibres are vegetable, animal, or mineral in origin. Some of the natural fibres like vegetable fibres are obtained from the various parts of the plants. They are provided by nature in ready-made form. It include the protein fibres such as wool and silk, the cellulose fibres such as cotton and linen, and the mineral fibre asbestos.

Acrylic Fibres

fiber Acrylic fibres are polymers formed by addition polymerization of at least 85% by weight of a chemical called acrylonitrile or vinyl chanide. To polymerise vinyl cyanide the double bond between the first two carbon atoms is broken and the molecules attach themselves to each other in a linear chain.

Natural Mineral/Metallic Fibres

fiber A number of fibres exist that are derived from natural mineral sources or are manufactured from inorganic and mineral salts. These fibres are predominantly derivatives of silica (Si02) or other metal oxides.

Pressing or Folding

apparel Although pressing remains largely a manual task, new automated process exists that apply force and steam to garments placed over a body form.
