Application of fancy yarns in woven fabrics

There are two ways to apply the fancy yarn to a woven fabric. One is that both latitude and longitude lines using fancy yarns, or full warp or full weft using fancy yarns. This is more widely used in thicker and stiffer fabrics. In general, there are fewer cases where both latitude and longitude lines use full fancy yarns, because too much embellishment in the cloth impairs the simplicity of feeling, making it too messy. There are other problems. For example, the fabric is too heavy and weaving efficiency declines, and the production cost rises.
