Karl Mayer, German developer of perfect solutions for warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation for weaving, has made a winter wear with high-speed tricot machine, HKS 4-M EL. The delicate bolero and the light and airy little tulle skirt made with feather-light fabric, are an attractive contrast to fur and a perfect light outfit for cold days.

A real eye-catching feature of the outfit is the cropped top, which is made from a feather-light fabric with a lace look, produced on a high-speed tricot machine. An HKS 4-M EL in a gauge of E 28 was used to produce it. The machine’s EL control facility, the clever yarn threading arrangement, and the sophisticated combination of yarns produce a lace-look fabric featuring a variety of designs, that is, mesh structures with large openings and dense areas with superimposed scalloped patterns create an alternating striped design. The interplay between the open-work and the dense constructions is produced by the yarns processed in ground guide bars GB 3 and GB 4. A filet threading arrangement and a fully threaded arrangement alternate in sequence. GB 2 and GB 3 work the pattern in the dense areas.

Matt/shiny effects bring a touch of extravagance to the graphic look. The shimmering effect is produced by processing monofilament yarns having a trilobal cross-section in the filigree ground, which resembles an embroidery ground. The superimposed design is made from textured polyester multifilament yarns having many filaments – a choice of yarns that enables the design to contrast effectively with the ground.
