Advancement of Chenille Fabric
After the introduction of chenille fabric in France, the fabric further evolved and reached Paisley, Scotland. They had their own specific manufacturing style for this fabric and was equally good, but unique as compared to the French version. In Paisley, the yarns of wool get woven into a piece of some sort of blanket which is then later cut into lucrative and attractive looking strips that can be used for a variety of upholstery purposes for interior home decoration. The fabric of chenille gets its soft and fuzzy feel and touch by heating the strips in a very unique and useful way. The specialty of the Scottish chenille fabric was and still is used in the manufacturing of the faux chenille rugs that have become world famous. Specially, these rugs are in very high demand in the United Kingdom and all across Europe. It is the latest form of chenille fabric in Scotland, which is a lot different from the ‘tufted’ chenille type of fabric which used to be very popular in the early 20th century in the region.
Modern Chenille Fabric
The style and technique of making chenille fabric today has completely transformed. It is finer with a lot of better quality as well. The modern process of weaving chenille fabric does not require any kind of pre weaving which was once used to be in the past. Instead, the modern technique uses small lengths of the pile type of yarns which are spun at a 90 degree angle between 2 central yarns. The pile type of yarns is highly preferable, and finer, which gives the chenille fabric its soft, delicate and a feathery appearance. They can be made from the rayon, silk, cotton or numerous other types of yarns or fibres. If we consider the core yarn on the other hand, then they are known to be typically derived from the low melt nylon. It is created by steaming the yarn, which sets up the pile yarns into nylon where the pile itself remains totally unchanged. This is a very innovative and a useful chenille weaving technique which keeps the fabric fuzz very firm and tightly in its place and just next to perfection.
