Gaucho pants are flared pants, which end just below the knee, often barely covering the top of boots. The gaucho pants style is typically simple and masculine, with accents such as leather belt or patch pockets. Due to the plain nature of the pants style, Gaucho pants are typically created with fabrics such as camel-cloth, flannel, tweed, flannel, or suede cloth.

A name hailing origins in the name ‘velour’ and ‘croquet’ – the name Velcro implies hooked velvet. Velcro is a trademark name, the generic name for this machine is ‘touch and close fastener.’

Hook and Loop Velcro

Hook and Loop Velcro

 

Mushroom Velcro

Mushroom Velcro

Typically Velcro has two strips with a width of 5/8” to 1 1/8”, composed entirely of nylon material. One strip has hooks while the other strip has very fine loops, resulting in a secure fastening. When the two sides of Velcro press together the result is a strong hold which is easily unfastened by peeling.


Hook and Loop Velcro is ideal for household, sports, and dressmaking as it has a long life and durability. Alternatively mushroom fasteners are not suitable for clothing applications instead mushroom fasteners are better in furnishing applications where the number of opening and closings are considerably fewer.

Weft yarns can create a ‘give ’ across the distance across the fabric, for this reason it is important to take into consideration weft’s tendency to ‘give’ when positioning a pattern on fabric.
