highly absorbent, one-sided or double-sided pile fabrics
with good dust cleansing and thermal properties.
These are plush knitted fabrics, such as single and double terry towelling, manufactured on special raschel or warp knitting machines, with additional sinkers for the pile.
Different effects are achieved using different microfibre yarns or natural fibres, e.g. very high absorbency, good dust cleansing through electrostatic charge or excellent thermal properties.
