Cotton bales are bought from the mill. These bales are dyed in color. Cotton yarns are wound to the spindles by the process of section warping. Further these spindles are inserted into fly shuttle and are connected to the warping beam. Required color, size and designs are set in the loom by using punch cards. According to these parameters the terry towels are weaved in the looms.
Terry towel is weaved by using two sheets of warp threads simultaneously. In which one is kept under normal tension and other is kept under loose tension. The threads of normal tension warp sheet are for ground warp and the threads of loose tension warp sheet are for pile warp. The sequence of operations during weaving for pile formation in 3 picks is explained below:
• Insertion of first pick as per the design with loose beating.
• Allow a predetermined gap near the feel/surface of cloth.
• Insertion of second pick following the first pick with loose beating.
• Insertion of third pick with heavy beating and bring all the three picks to feel/surface of the cloth.
Four pick terry towels are heavier in structure and provide better quality in comparison to three pick terry towels. Once the terry towels are weaved they are detached from the loom and are checked thoroughly. The border stitches are made and cross checked again. The waste yarns are removed. Thus the final product is weighed and packed to be dispatched.
