Acrylic
Generic name for man made fibers derived from polyacrylonitrile. Features a soft , woolly hand; wash and wear performance; brilliant high shade colors; good sunlight and wrinkle resistance.

Air Jet Spinning
During Air Jet Spinning, yarn is made by wrapping fibers around a core stream of fibers with compressed air. In this process , the fibers are stretched to the appropriate size , then fed to the air jet chambers where they are twisted, first in one direction, then in the reverse direction in a second chamber. The yarn is stabilized after each operation.

Yarn produced this way pills less because the spinning process creates a tighter outer wrap which holds otherwise loose polyester fibers (as seen in Open End Spinning) in place. Fewer loose polyester fibers means less pilling.

Argyle
A popular design for knitted fabrics, both hand and machine knit. Two or three colors generally are used in a diamond-shaped pattern.
