What is knitted fabric?



Knit fabric is an elastic material, made by yarns initially formed into loops and then interconnected in order to produce a textile structure. Knit fabrics do not have a weave. However, the system of weft and warp threads, traditional for other fabric types, is preserved. The feature of knitwear is that it can stretch as you like due to the loops, which can change the size and shape. Knit fabrics including rib, single jersey, tricot, raschel, interlock and fleece.

Other than construction, knitted fabrics can be classified into different types depending on its functions. Performance fabrics are suitable for every occasion. Lightweight fabrics come with natural wicking property while heavyweight fabrics have remarkable heat retention. High stretch fabrics is a must for activewear.
