Abstract

A loop component (22) of a hook and loop fastener made of a fibrous, thermally retracted material. A method of making the loop component (22) includes heating one side (34) of a fibrous, thermally retractable material to a high enough temperature to cause the material to retract, thereby bonding the fibers on that side (34) while allowing the fibers on the opposite side (32) to gather into loops (28).
