  • New Anti-pilling Fabrics For Innerwear


    New Anti-pilling Fabrics For Innerwear
    Thai Acrylic Fibre (TAF) and World Knitting Textiles, of Samutsakorn, Thailand, have developed a new fabric range for innerwear and base layers using a combination of wool and Pilbloc – a long-lasting anti-pilling acrylic fibre distinguished by its soft touch and thermal comfort. World Knitting Textiles, established in 1986, is an integrated knitting and dyeing and finishing business and a garment manufacturer and exporter with its major markets in USA, EU, and Japan. “Our customers always look for innovation and good quality and everyone knows that acrylic’s unique property is to retain warmth, similar to wool,” said Sombat Chatromyen, managing director of World Knitting Textiles. “Pilbloc, however, is unlike other anti-pilling fibres on the market as the function is inherent in the fibre itself. Another benefit is that the hand-feel of the fabrics produced with Pilbloc is very soft.” “Our Pilbloc has been popular in sweaters and flat knit applications for many years,” added Ashwini Chotani, chief marketing officer at TAF, which is part of the Aditya Birla Group. “Pilling is one of the major problems with synthetic fibres. Pilbloc’s anti-pilling function is generated with a specially engineered process, and hence the function lasts for the life of the garment. Another big advantage with this production process is that, it gives the very soft hand-touch which makes the consumer feel very comfortable while wearing it. “Initially we used to produce it in coarser deniers, but we now also offer micro deniers which make Pilbloc perform even better and can be used for circular knits and very light-weight fabrics that are suitable for innerwear and base layers. World Knitting is one of the top circular knitting mills in Thailand with a good portfolio of overseas customers and it is our pleasure to support them with this innovation.” For this fabric, Welltex's fine gauge series model "WDFG/OW-2.2F", double jeresey interlock open width 38"44G84F circular knitting machine, can produce it.

  • Circular knitted material innovation for COVID-19


    Circular knitted material innovation for COVID-19
    Hitesh Sharma, a knitting technologist (CQA) and President of the International Federation of Knitting Technologists (IFKT), Canada/US section has developed a circular knitted fabric which can be used for the production of non-medical protective facemasks, to help in the fight against COVID-19. Mr Sharma is very generously making the H97-LoopCluster innovation available to circular knitted fabric manufacturers worldwide at no cost. “This innovation may be distributed among circular knitting fabric manufacturers worldwide, if needed, whose machines are capable to produce this kind of fabric with high speed production. The intention of distribution information is completely non-profit and without any monetary benefits due to this pandemic,” Mr Sharma said in a statement. Details of the innovation are as follows: Technical Material Data:  H97-LoopCluster 1.     Air permeability = 60.2 *tested on Frazier precision tester rating in cubic feet per square foot of fabrics per minute @30” of Murcury,70-degree F and 65% relative humidity. 2.     Yarn Polyfilament (423.6 Micronaire) 3.     Looping qty: 34x54= 1836/2 =918 LoopCluster per square inch 4.     Mask size 6”x7” =42 Square inch. Then in each mask contain of: 42x918=38,556 Looping cluster 5.     Looping height=2.65mm 6.     6.Material weight=14.15 ounce per square yard 7.     Material Thickness =0.44 mm (compare to 0.34 mm normal surgical mask) 8.     Loop size=Front side 0.355mm and Backside 0.275mm “The knitted H-97 LoopCluster material was developed on a superfine circular knitting machine with higher gauge and lower pitch, made by using special type of sinkers and additional interlocking loop casting-off technology for maximum virus protection. During research, the said material has limited possibilities to be developed on flat knitting technology due to machines higher pitch value and limited gauge/cut availability e.g,18. Other technical variations compare to circular knitting technology,” Hitesh Sharma added. “The LoopCluster material prevented to enter glycoprotein spikes existed in corona virus while breathing and stop these virus droplets spreads in the air when a mask worn by a person. These droplets and other small particles can easily land on other people, clothing and surfaces around them, but the LoopCluster material can easily control/hold to dispose the smaller particles in the air while sneezing and coughing.” The study shows that the virus could survive in droplets for up to 3 hours after being coughed out into the air. Fine droplets between 1-5 micrometres in size – about 30 times smaller than the width of a human hair could remain airborne for several hours in still air. However, that copper surfaces tended to kill the virus in about 4 hours, on plastic and stainless steel (up to 2 to 3 days), cop...

  • Spacer Fabric


    Spacer Fabric
    Spacer fabric is a three-dimensional knitted fabric consisting of two separate knitted substrates which are joined together or kept apart by spacer yarns. First layer  - hydrophilic yarn Second layer - hydrophilic yarn Spacer layer - mono-filament or multi-filament. Circular knitting Spacer fabrics, the thickness of which can be woven from 1mm to 5mm; breathable, heat-insulating, and four-way stretch. This is three-dimensional fabric is comprised of an initial layer for moisture release, an interior layer for air flow, and a third outer layer for heat dissipation. According to the end uses the spacer ends of mono-filaments may be polyester, polyamide or polypropylene. These fabrics are designed for air-flow and cushioning. The middle to create two separate fabrics(spacer fabrics)are essentially pile fabrics that have not been cut consisting of two layers of fabric separated by yarns at a 90-degree angle.

  • China’s circular knit sector in full flow


    China’s circular knit sector in full flow
    China’s circular knitting industry is booming in 2021, both at the expense of other major manufacturing countries and the woven sector. In the latest webinar held by technology leader Groz-Beckert on October 4th, consultants from The Fiber Year GmbH outlined the multiple reasons for this. While China’s overall knitting industry output fell by 9% in 2020, after the country was forced to close down to deal with the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has subsequently bounced back to full production and has also been heavily investing in new low-cost, high speed and flexible circular knitting capacity, as well as in warp knitting machines, although there has been a significant drop in orders for flat knitting machines from the country. The pandemic resulted in a significant change in apparel demand globally, with a large increase in sportswear and leisurewear based on fine gauge fabrics, heavily influenced by the rise in both home working and the preference for outdoor activities. This shift was at the expense of formal wear which is to a greater extent the domain of woven fabrics. With Covid-19 ongoing, many countries have also been struggling to contain second and third wave outbreaks, with a return to lockdowns in major knitting countries including Bangladesh, Brazil and Vietnam having damaging impacts. These countries are now experiencing order backlogs and inevitably, new orders are flowing back to China. The flexible nature of circular knitting is also bringing benefits in a general move to shorter lot production runs. In the first six months of 2021, China has increased its knitted apparel production by 34%, with exports booming and retail sales in China itself even higher, reflecting the success, both on the domestic markets and in exports this year, of China’s own sportswear brands such as Anta and Li Ning. As a result, The Fiber Year GmbH expects that the global production of knitted fabrics will be on par or above that of 2019 in 2021, although the analysts cautioned that a great deal of uncertainty remains due to both Covid-19 and the current shipping container problem. www.groz-beckert.com www.thefiberyear.com
