Unlike cotton fabric, terry cloth is not widely produced. It can be done by industrial or manual processes; industrial production is more practical for this fabric. It is made using one weft thread and two warp threads. The first warp thread is woven flat with great tension, thus forming the frame of the fabric. The second warp thread, called the loop, is woven into the support with a much softer tension, giving the terry cloth a curly, fluffy effect.
