What is the knitted fabric?

Knitted fabrics are fabrics formed by bending yarns into loops with knitting needles and stringing them together. They are widely used in clothing fabrics and linings, home textiles, mattresses and other products.

Knitted fabrics can be classified according to the weaving process:

(1) Weft-knitted garment knitted fabrics refer to knitted grey fabrics woven on a weft-knitting machine and subjected to post-finishing processing, including various weft-knitted single-sided fabrics and double-sided fabrics.

(2) Warp knitted wear knitted fabrics refer to knitted grey fabrics woven on a warp knitting machine and subjected to post-finishing processing. Including all kinds of warp-knitted single-sided fabrics and double-sided fabrics

Uses of knitted fabrics:

Knitted fabrics can use a wide range of raw materials, including cotton, wool, silk, hemp, chemical fiber, and their blended yarn or cross yarn. Knitted material is soft, in addition to good wrinkle resistance and air permeability, it also has greater extensibility and elasticity, suitable for underwear, tights and sportswear. After changing the structure and improving the dimensional stability, the knitted fabric can also be used as outerwear, mattress fabric, etc.

The advantages and disadvantages of knitted fabrics:

Although knitted fabrics have irreplaceable advantages over other fabrics, they have better elasticity, moisture absorption, breathability, comfort and warmth and so on. But it is not perfect. When it is used as a clothing fabric, attention should be paid to its physical properties such as expansion, curling, and loosening. For example, the stretchability of knitted fabrics can minimize the seams, gathers, and splices designed for modeling when designing the model. When washing, try not to wash with hot water as much as possible, so that it is extremely easy to fold and shorten the fabric.

For another example, knitted fabrics are dispersible. When designing and making patterns, please pay attention to some knitted fabrics. Do not use too many exaggerated techniques. Try to avoid designing roads and cutting lines. The stitching should not be too much to prevent knitting. The looseness of the loop affects the wearability of the clothing, and the simple and soft lines should be used in harmony with the soft fit style of the knitwear.
