About Cut Pile Fabric


    cut pile fabric
    The characteristic of cut pile fabric is the tufts or loops of fibers or yarns erected from the base fabric and then cut with a machine. Cut pile fabrics exist in many forms, such as velvet, terry towel, chenille and the most common cut pile fabric carpet. They can be manufactured by many processes including tufting, knitting, knotting, flocking and non-woven fabrics. It is believed that velvet fabrics existed as early as 2000 BC. The most common type of velvet is cut pile woven fabric, which is widely used in apparel and home decoration applications. The pile is made from another set of warp yarns used in the weaving process. There are several production methods. One method is to perform wire weaving by inserting the wire into a shed formed by warp yarns used for warp yarns. After the metal filaments are drawn out, the pile warp yarns will form yarn loops on the surface of the fabric. The piles can be left as ring piles or cut into cut piles. In terry fabrics, loops are formed on both sides of the fabric. Another method of producing pile fabrics is face-to-face knitting, where a double-layer fabric is on top of another layer, made with vertical links provided by an additional set of warp yarns. The connected warp yarns are then cut to produce velvet piles. Obviously, cut pile fabric can only be made in this way. It can also be produced by weaving or even non-woven fabrics.
