Knitting Lapping Diagrams

fabric knitting With the exception of the very simplest structures, it is too time consuming to represent warp knitted fabric using stitch or loop diagrams. For this reason two methods of fabric representation are commonly used a. Lapping diagrams, b. Numerical representation.

Woven Fabrics

fabric weaving Woven fabrics are made by using two or more sets of yarn interlaced at right angles to each other. Much variety is produced by weaving.

Functions of Carding

spinning spun-yarn yarn Carding is a mechanical process that breaks up locks and unorganised clumps of fibre and then aligns the individual fibres so that they are more or less parallel with each other. Carding can also be used to create blends of different fibres or different colours. Carding plays a crucial role in all spinning cycles particularly in the woollen spinning cycle, in which it incorporates different functions, all essential in order to obtain the level of quality required of the product.

Importance of Cutting Room

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.

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.

Pattern Grading

apparel Pattern Grading is the process where by patterns of different sizes are produced from the original master pattern. This process can be performed manually or automatically by a computerized system. Patterns are graded according to size charts which present the sizes and the average measurements of the population group for which the garments are intended.In order to produce garment that fits various body types and sizes, the pattern pieces must be increased or decreased geometrically to create a

Filament Yarn Spinning

spinning yarn For transforming filament fibres to yarns involve processes such as Wet spinning, Dry spinning, Melt spinning, Bi-component spinning, Bi-constituent spinning, ICS etc.

Manual Flat Knitting Machines

fabric knitting weaving The flat knitting machine is a two-bed machine. The most important mechanical features of a flat knitting machine are the supporting frame, the yarn feeding system, a transmission system, a fabric take-down motion, a central programming unit, a needle-bed racking system
