What is "Pile Wire" - Definition & Explanation

A steel rod which is inserted in between the base fabric and the pile ends in a pile fabric woven on a wire loom or ÚpinglÚ loom. The height and thickness of the rod determine the size of the loop. A pile wire can be a simple rod - in which case the pile yarns will form a 'loop' pile. If the pile wire is equipped with a blade holder and cutting blade at the tip it will cut the pile loops during extraction thus producing cut pile.
