Plying of Woolen Yarn
""In the process of carpet making, the first step is Plying of Woolen Yarn. We have a huge space where the yarn is plied. We give utmost care to this process as it is the initial step.Wool - its structure and properties:-
Wool has been used from the earliest history of carpet construction because the early rug makers were nomadic sheep herders. Since then rug making has been associated with the technology of the wool industry and this tradition has provided the benchmark by which other fibers are compared Of all the textile fibers, wool is by far the most complex.
Wool consists of a protein named keratin, which has an intricate structure of long-chain molecules. There are many cross-linkages (or chemical bonds) between the long, coiled chains, and this structure is largely responsible for the outstanding elastic properties of wool, its strength, and durability. The unique surface scales (the cuticle), which cover the fibers and the wavelike crimp shape give wool its special characteristics. Of all the carpet fibers wool has the farther highest capacity to absorb moisture.Wool types for carpets:-
The types of wool used for tufted carpets Handmade Silk carpets, hand knotted carpets, woolen carpets, woolen silk carpets, and rugs. may be classified into three main groups. These are used in differing proportions in blends, depending on the quality (which controls the price) and type of carpet to be made.""
