Plush Socks Sinkers

Single-sided plated plush or terry is a popular leisurewear and sportswear structure that has the form-fitting properties of single jersey and is used in both fabric and sock form. The elongated plush sinker loops are formed over a higher knock-over surface than the normal-length ground sinker loops with which they are plated (Fig. 14.4). The plush sinker loops show as a pile between the wales on the technical back of the fabric.

Henkel plush or velour is achieved during finishing, by cropping or shearing the plush sinker loops in both directions. This leaves the individual fibres exposed as a soft velvety surface whilst the ground loops remain intact. It requires a fine gauge structure and involves a considerable loss of cropped fibre.
