FABRIC COUNT
THE CLOSENESS OR COMPACTNESS OF THE YARNS IN WOVEN FABRICS NUMERICALLY REPORTED
WHICH FABRIC IS CHARACTERIZED BY HIGH LUSTER AND SHEEN?
SATIN
THE LOOM DEVICE USED IN BATTENING; ALSO KNOWN AS THE LAY:
BEATER BAR
DEVICES ON LOOMS THAT SUPPORT THE HEDDLES AND FORM THE SHED
HARNESSES
DEVICES ON LOOMS THROUGH WHICH THE WARP YARNS ARE THREADED
HEDDLES
CONVENTIONAL SELVAGE
FORMED BY THE CONTINUOUS FILLING YARN BEING TURNED AT EACH EDGE TO PRODUCE A FINISHED, NONRAVELING EDGE
COURDUROY
WOVEN OR TUFTED FABRIC WHOSE CUT PILE SURFACE HAS A PRONOUNCED NAP.
DENTS
OPENINGS IN THE REED THROUGH WHICH THE WARP YARNS ARE THREADED
DIMITY
SHEER, WARP-RIB WOVEN CURTAIN FABRIC
DOBBY WEAVE
DECORATIVE WEAVE REQUIRING MANY HARNESSES; DISTINGUISHED BY SMALL, GEOMETRIC WOVEN-IN MOTIFS.
END
ONE WARP YARN
FUSED SELVAGE
ENDS OF THE FILLING YARNS, WHICH MUST BE COMPOSED OF THERMOPOLASTIC FIBERS, ARE HEATED TO FUSE THEM TOGETHER.
JACQUARD WEAVE
DECORATIVE WEAVE IN WHICH INDEPENDENT CONTROL OF EACH WARP YARNS PROVIDES FOR AN INFINITE VARIETY OF SHEDS, AND THUS, EXTREMELY COMPLEX INTERLACING PATTERNS.
LAPPET WEAVING
SURFACE-FIGURE WEAVE IN WHICH EXTRA WARP YARNS ARE SHIFTED LATERALLY TO CREATE A ZIGZAG PATTERN THAT RESEMBLES HAND EMBROIDERY.
MARQUISETTE
TRANSPARENT, LIGHTWEIGHT LENO-WOVEN CURTAIN FABRIC COMPOSED OF FINE, MONOFILAMENT YARNS.
PLAIN WEAVE
SIMPLE INTERLACING IN WHICH WARP AND FILLING YARNS ALTERNATELY CROSS ONE ANOTHER.
RAPIER
DEVICE USED IN PICKING TO CARRY THE FILLING YARN TO THE CENTER OF THE SHED WHERE IT IS PICKED UP BY A SECOND RAPIER AND CARRIED TO THE OPPOSITE SELVAGE.
TRIAXIAL WEAVE
FABRICATION TECHNIQUE IN WHICH TWO SETS OF WARP YARNS AND ONE SET OF FILLING YARNS ARE INTERLACED AT 60-DEGREE ANGLE.
TUCKED-IN SELVAGE
FABRIC EDGE FINISH IN WHICH THE ENDS OF THE CUT FILLING PICKS ARE TURNED BACK INTO THE NEXT SHED.
WOOF YARNS
ANOTHER NAME FOR FILLING YARNS; ALSO KNOWN AS WEFT
THE ROWS OF YARN LOOPS RUNNING LENGTHWISE IN A KNITTED FABRIC ARE KNOWN AS
WALES
HIGHLY DECORATIVE LACE AND MACRAME FABRICS ARE PRODUCED BY KNOTTING OR TWISTING INTERSECTING YARNS. A MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO KINDS OF FABRIC IS
THE SIZE OF THE YARNS USED
TEXTILE FABRICS PRODUCED BY MECHANIOCALLY ENTANGLING FIBERS ARE REFERRED TO AS:
SPUNLACING FIBERS
THE YARNS IN LACE FABRICS ARE
ORIENTED IN VARIOUS DIRECTIONS
WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS IS NOT CORRECT WITH REGARD TO WEFT INSERTION:
A) WARP KNITTING AND WEAVING ARE COMBINED
B) MOST OF THE FABRIC WEIGHT AND COVER IS PROVIDED BY THE WEFT YARNS
C) TRANSPARENCY AND COVERING POWER ARE DIFFICULT TO CONTROL
D) MANUFACTURERS ARE INCREASINGLY USING WEFT INSERTION
C. TRANSPARENCY AND COVERING POWER ARE DIFFICULT TO CONTROL
BOBBIN LACE
CREATED BY ARTISANS MANIPULATING MULTIPLE PARIS OF BOBBINS TO TWIST AND CORSS YARNS
CIRCULAR BRAIDS
NARROW, OFTEN DECORATIVE STRANDS CREATED BY INTERLACING YARNS OR YARN-LIKE STRANDS AROUND A TEXTILE CORD.
COURSES
CROSSWISE ROWS OF LOOPS IN A KNITTED FABRIC
CROCHETING
INTERLOOPING YARNS WITH ONE NEEDLE, IN CONTRAST TO INTERLOPING YARNS WITH TWO NEEDLES AS IN KNITTING
DOILIES
SMALL, DECORATIVE TABLETOP ACCESSORIES
FELT
NONWOVEN FABRIC PRODUCED BY FELTING SHRINKAGE.
FIBROUS BATTS
THREE-DIMENSIONAL ARRANGEMENT OF WEBS OF FIBERS THAT CAN BE BONDED WITH ADHESIVE OR HEAT INTO ESSENTIALLY FALT STRUCTURES.
FILM SHEETING
NONTEXTILE FABRIC PRODUCED BY FORMING POLYMER SOLUTIONS INTO A THIN FILM.
FLAT BRAIDS
NARROW, OFTEN DECORATIVE STRAND FORMED BY INTERLACING A MINIMUM OF THREE YARNS OR YARN-LIKE STRANDS.
GUIDE BARS
DEVICES USED IN WARP KNITTING TO POSITION THE YARNS AROUND THE HOOKS OF THE NEEDLES.
INTERLOCK STITCH
INTERLOOPING YARNS TO CREATE THE APPEARANCE OF TWO INTERKNITTED FABRICS
JERSEY STITCH
FILLING KNITTING STITCH DISTINGUISHED BY HERRINGBONE-LIKE WALES ON THE FABRIC FACE AND CRESCENTS OR HALF-MOON COURSES ON THE FABRIC BACK.
NEEDLEPUNCHING
FABRICATION TECHNIQUE IN WHICH BARBED NEEDLES ARE USED TO INTRODUCE A MECHANICAL CHAIN-STITCH IN A FIBROUS BATTING
TATTING
HAND TECHNIQUE IN WHICH ARTISANS MANIPULATE ONE SMALL BOBBIN TO TWIST FINE YARNS INTO OPEN, HIGHLY DECORATIVE LACE.
TUFTING
FABRICATION TECHNIQUE IN WHICH PILE YARNS ARE INSERTED INTO A PREFORMED BASE FABRIC.
