Karl Mayer had launched the Jacquardtronic Lace machine, the JL 65/1 B Fashion in the market last year to give new impetus to designing attractive lace fabrics and for processing heavy bourdon cord yarns.

“As edgings to the motifs, these vein-like yarns run over the varied, filigree net ground to produce a heavy, yet supple drape, a structured feel and a subtle three-dimensional surface,” it said in a press release.

According to Karl Mayer, lace is more on trend than ever before, and not just for lingerie, with opulent lace patterns with large motifs and striking patterns increasingly making their way from underwear to outerwear.

Karl Mayer recently processed a viscose bourdon yarn in a count of dtex 2,450 on the JL 65/1 B in a gauge of E 18 to produce a beautiful pattern.

This demanding yarn was fed in via a Positive Patternbeam Drive (PPD), which enabled it to run the machine under optimum tension control.

“Feeding in the yarn to match the pattern produces an extremely uniform fabric appearance, without any loops or faulty tension zones,” it added.

The viscose was combined with polyester during production, which was dyed in a light blue colour during the subsequent package dyeing stage.

“In addition to this striking two-colour look, the matt/shiny appearance and the juxtaposition of transparent effects with opaque ones produce contrasting effects in this apparel lace,” it informed.

The large floral motifs are the result of a wide needle repeat of 128 needles and the Jacquardtronic Lace, with a working width of 132", produced two fabric webs at the same time.

“These were finished off at the side edges by a frill, a useful feature when designing apparel,” the German knitting machine producer explained.

The scalloped edges can be used as skirt hems, blouse collars or sleeve cuffs, as well as for net curtain borders and in addition, the JL 65/1 B can also produce window fashions. (AR)
