I FABRIC Filed Sept. 17, 1936 IN V! N r018 MW 11. ennu W Patented Apr. 9, 1940 units oFFicE 1 Claim.
This invention relatesto an improved fabric woven with an especially twisted filling made of rayon or synthetic fibre in such manner that a corkscrew shape is imparted to the weft threads 5 and thereby a non-slipv fabric is produced.
One of the objects of the above mentioned construction is the production of a non-slip fabric, of such characterthat the fabric may not be easily disintegrated. This fabric may be woven with it) a warp composed of almost any type'of synthetic yarn or other material.
In the preferred form of the invention, the weft .isconstructed by first taking a pure silk thread vof a certain denier raw silk and twisting the same until a high twist of, for example, 75 turns first inch and then taking two of such twisted single threads and twisting the same to an additional twist of approximately 40 turns per inch, making a combination thread of pure silk with a very high number of turns perinch.
e Other objects of this invention is a provision of a cloth having great elasticity in both the warp and the weft directions.
Other and further objects of the invention will become apparent from a reading of the following small warp threads lying in the depressions of the weft strands.
Figure 3 is a plan view of the fabric.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, 35 there is shown therein a silk thread 10 which is twisted to a very high twist as, for example, 75 turns per inch, as indicated at I l.
Similarly, a1; l2 there is shown another silk thread which is twisted to a similar high twist as indicated at [3. The threads I0 and I2, twisted as 6 indicated at H and I3, are then twisted together at approximately 40 turns per inch as. indicated at I4 to form a weft thread which weft thread forms the bases of the present invention.
It will be apparent to those skilled in the art 1 that with a weft thread formed as indicated above that the warped threadslie in the hollows formed by the twist l4 and that therebya high degree of resistance to slippage will be attained.
The fabric produced under the specifications as 15 above outlined is capable of resisting strains which would ordinarily decompose fabrics of similar weight and weave. j v I While but one form of the invention has been herein described and illustrated, it is to be under- 20 v stood that various minor modifications may be made within the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claim;
What is claimed is:
of comparatively small size, a weft formed. of pairs of threads of slippery material and of comparatively large size, each of the latter'threads being separately twisted to '75 turns per inch and then twi'st'edtogether 40 additional turns per inch and together forming threads of comparatively large size with respect to the warp threads, whereby a high degree of resistance to slippageis attained in the fabric.
