Manchester velvet; weft velvet; see manchester

mid- to heavyweight pile cotton fabric, with vertical ribbing (of the same or different widths and heights) in relief pile; is somewhat coarse to the touch. Produced from fine-twisted yarns in the warp, and single, sometimes coarser yarns in the weft, using the m. v. weave technique with one warp and two wefts, of which one after cutting-up, ageing, lifting, combing and cutting forms a pile, relief surface. The back is stiffened for reinforcement. Used for work, sports and children's clothing. The name is given by the English city Manchester, a well-known centre of the cotton-manufacturing industry. Vide also corduroy.
