Specification of Letters Patent. I EPat nt dMay 18, 1915.
Application filed January 2, 1915. Serial No. 317.
To all'whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK MUROH, a
citizen of the United States, residing at Methuen, in the county of Essex and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Textile Fabric, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to textile fabrics and consists of a particular arrangement of warp and weft threads of certain specified materials. The fabric is intended primarily for what is known as mens goods and more particularly for use as an outing cloth for garments of both men and women. Its purpose is to provide a cloth of peculiar brightness'and characteristic luster. One which is cool in warm weather, which keeps its shape and which can be washed without losing its luster. In making this fabric, I prefer to use a continuous strong cotton warp which may be of-single or plural ply, preferably two ply. For the weft threads, I use preferably one pick of mohair and thena pick of silky fiber such as silk or of artificial silk,
preferably the latter. These mohair threads should preferably be of combed fiber.
In the drawings, the figure shows an enlarged. section of cloth of my construction.
cotton threads and a Weft having vpicks of mlohair' alternating with picks of artificial si k. Y
3. A woven fabric consisting of a warp of cotton threads and a weft having picks of mohair and of silky fiber.
In testimony whereof I hereto aflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
