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.

Open-End Spinning

spinning spun-yarn yarn The first functioning of rotor spinning ,machine was presented at the ITMA in 1967.Yarn spinning according to the rotor spinning principle predominates for all non conventional spinning methods.It omits the step of forming a roving.After drafting, the sliver is fed into a rotary beater.This device ensures that the fibers are beaten into a thin supply which enters a duct and gets deposited on the sides of the disc(rotor).The transportation of the fibers is achieved through air currents.


apparel Merchandising is the department which mediates marketing and production departments. It is Space optimization through effective Brand/Package allocation, focusing on gaining first position, providing greatest exposure of brands to all consumers, creating a consistent, orderly and clean appearance for the products, maximizing the use of POS to increase consumer awareness of brand and promotions.

Blended Fiber Analysis

fiber Blended yarns usually offer the best of several worlds - the breathability of wool or cotton, the durability of acrylic or nylon. Blends take dye differently and offer different color effects as well.Fiber blending has has for a long time been practiced in textile processing. By mixing fibers of different types to form textile yarns , many advantages are achieved, such as property compensation or reinforcement between fibers, cost reduction without significant sacrifice of yarn performance by pa

Preparing the Fabric

embroidery finishing Length and width of the required fabric depend both on the length of the embroidery machine as well as on the article produced.?

Textile Yarns

knitting spinning yarn Yarns are continuous strands of fibers that can be woven or knitted into fabrics. Natural staple fibers usually requires processes such as spinning to make yarns. Silk yarn, extracted from silk cocoon are continuous filament yarns. Most of the synthetic yarns also does not require the additional processes of spinning.

Manmade Synthetic Fibres

fiber The synthetic man-made fibres include the polyamides (nylon), polyesters, acrylics, polyolefin, vinyl, and elastomeric fibres, while the regenerated fibres include rayon, the cellulose acetates, the regenerated proteins, glass and rubber fibres

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

Pre-Shrinking Finish on Fabrics

finishing Pre-shirking is needed almost on all fabrics because most textile materials shrink when washed. However preshrinking can only reduce the residual shrinkage to a lower percentage, but cannot completely eliminate it. On cotton fabrics, usually take away 8-10%shrinkage by preshrinking, leaving about 5-6% in them.

Tailor Tracks

apparel There are many ways to mark the inside of a garment, but experts use tailor tacks most often. A tailor tack is a short length of thread placed in the fabric. Correctly done, it is the safest way to mark, and can be used on more fabrics than any other marking system.
