Warp knitted plush; warp velvet

has two warps - a basic and a pile - and one weft, which together with the basic warp creates its own fabric of linen, twill, satin or a derived weave. Apart from the basic weft special needles are introduced in given open sheds, above which rises the pile warp or part of this. Pile threads placed on a needle are cut through by various techniques, creating a dense, short pile. W. k. p. with a short, thick pile tends to be referred to as velvet. Used for ladies' formal dresses and coats, and for decorative purposes.
