  • Patent number: 5862681
    Abstract: The present invention relates to improved pile fabrics containing courses in which at least two pile forming yarns are meshed across a complete course together cooperatively in various fabric constructions, and respectively into a ground fabric, and forming pile loops one another alternatively in succeeding wales or areas. The fabric is manufactured according to a process in which needles are moved into a feeding position in which they remain, meanwhile in at least two succeeding sections, alternatively, pile elements are selected and raised and after the feeding of a pile yarn are retracted to an intermediate position. The pile yarns are controlled separately from one another and are unaffected in their movement to the loop-forming and meshing action.
