Can somebody please try to fill in more information on this page? I'm trying to figure out the difference between fabrics that are Warp Knit, Circular Knit, or Woven.

I'm also trying to find what is the exact meaning of "finishing". Does it include dyeing? Thx

== Finishing; this can be done on fabric stage or in garment form for example, To get a soft effct on garment/fabric there are different kinds of softener(i.e.,cataionic nature nonionic nature,silicone based )are this different kind of finishes are there namely softner,enzyme,resin,flame retardant, stiffener,water repellent so on.biocleanchennai Sakthi.

Transfer to Wikipedia?[edit]

== warp knit, the warp knit and the woven i think these are the same and this two is different than the circular knitting. The warp knit or the woven are weaved in a flat machine of having different kind of inputs and can be weaved in automatic looms and normal looms esspecially in looms, but circular knitting will be knitted in a round machine and the input method is singular. Finally warp knit anf woven are called as "Weaving - which weaves the yarn from one to another " and the circular knit is called as "Knitting - which interlaces the yarns to the another "

You may want to read and apply Wikipedia:Manual of Style (glossaries). -- œ 16:30, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

re: Copy to Wiktionary[edit]

I'm all for copying to Wiktionary but I hope that doesn't mean this glossary will be deleted afterwards.. I happen to find it quite useful anyway, and there are many such glossaries and indexes on Wikipedia.. plus this is a great starting point leading to other articles. It does need a bit of work however.. -- œ 02:00, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

This should be copied to wiktionary and merged into the existing wikt:Appendix:Glossary of textile manufacturing terms. bd2412 T 14:53, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

General comment[edit]

In addition to the suggestion made eight months ago that this page should be edited in a manner consistent with Wikipedia:Manual of Style (glossaries), I think it would be beneficial to remove most of the links from the "Terms" column (especially red links and links to disambiguation pages), and instead link relevant topics in the "Description" column, as these links are more likely to lead to information that will be useful to the reader. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 15:45, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Scope, and accuracy[edit]

As someone has said, this page needs a lot of work (or should it be humanely disposed of ... ?)

If "A.K.A." is a textile term, then I'm a Dutchman, but not the one who put a couple of Dutch language terms in here.

I think the transfer to the dictionary is unsuitable because of the vague definitions.

Has anyone any strong views about radical surgery here?

I'm up for radical surgery. I suggest the entries here be merged into Glossary of textile manufacturing or Glossary of sewing terms, or abandoned, as appropriate. - PKM (talk) 20:42, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

I'd support merging textile terminology and textile manufacturing, but sewing should be kept separate and I would even split these to give a new List of fabric types, for those materials that are simply fabric types. Andy Dingley (talk) 19:07, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 Done. glossary of textile terminology has now been merged into glossary of textile manufacturing. I hope that after some post-merge cleanup, we will soon have the best of both articles. --DavidCary (talk) 22:05, 23 March 2014 (UTC)


Is grogram (like in 'Old Grogram' Edward Vernon) the same as grosgrain? It is obscure because I don't know much about this. Komitsuki (talk) 13:01, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
