Natural Protein Hair/Fur Fibres

fiber Hair fibres obtained from different kinds of animals also contribute to the fabric formation such as Musk-Ox (qiviut), Alpaca, Mohair, Cashmere, Camel etc.

Nips

apparel Nips are small cuts put into the outside edge of the fabric with the point of your shears. These are placed wherever the 5/8" stitching starts or stops at the edge of a seamline.When starting and ending a seam, if you match these two nips on each layer of fabric, all of your seam lines will be accurate.

Bra Manufacturing

apparel Various significant aspects of brassiere manufacturing are covered, e.g. bra design, molding technology and manufacturing automation. Bra design is substantial to brand product development while innovative molding technology is the key to signature types of bras like sewfree bra, seamless bra and one-piece bra. Automation has been a global trend in manufacturing as it reduces the labour cost and, on the other hand,enhances the consistency in product quality.

Water Proof and Water Repellent Finishes

finishing under-garments Fabrics to be used as raincoats, umbrellas, and tarpaulins have to be treated with chemicals to give them a property which makes them water resistant. The finish is called waterproofing and it is a durable finish. Water repellant finish is different from water proof finish. It means water, if showered on the fabric briefly, cannot make the fabric wet.

Kapok or Capok Fibres

fiber spinning Kapok/Capok fibre is one of the natural cellulosic fibres which grow on the kapok plant. It has a hollow body and a sealed tail, which are desirable features of candidates for functional textiles of this nature. However, the low volume weight of kapok is (specific density 0.29g/cm3), and the short length and smooth surface of the fibres, causing poor inter-fibre cohesion, have prevented kapok from being processed by modern spinning machines.

Fusing Temperature

apparel Fusing in fact is lamination of two ore more textile surfaces by using thermoplastic resins. Therefore temperature is the most important (but also the most critical factor for the application of fusing.

Seam Types

apparel Seam types are the place where two pieces of fabric are joined by application of a series of stitches or stitch types with a defined geometry. Over the years there are a number of different types of seams that have been developed to do different jobs. Many have largely been superseded by the development of machine stitches that finish as you sew them, and by the development of the over locker (or serger in some parts of the world), it is useful to know some of the basic seams types and finishes.

Methods of Fusing

apparel All the descriptions of the fusing processes that have been included ,have represented it as a single piece of interlining, laid resin side down,on a single piece of garment fabric ,laid right side down. This is referred to as single fusing and it is the safest in the sense that it is easiest to set the press conditions to achieve the correct temperature at the glue line.Some other methods of fusing in garment contruction are Reserve fusing,Sandwich fusing, double fusing

Natural Protein Wool Fibres

fiber Wool, common name applied to the soft, curly fibres obtained chiefly from the fleece of domesticated sheep, and used extensively in textile manufacturing.

Knitting

fabric knitting Knitting is a method by which thread or yarn may be turned into cloth. Knitting consists of consecutive loops, called stitches. As each row progresses, a new loop is pulled through an existing loop. The active stitches are held on a needle until another loop can be passed through them. Basically there are two types of knitting which are weft knitting, versus wrap knitting and another type is flat knitting versus circular knitting.
