What is Knit Fabric?

Knit fabric is made by interlocking yarns together to form a fabric. The yarns can be made from a variety of materials, such as cotton, wool, polyester, and nylon. Knit fabrics are known for their stretchiness and are used in a wide range of clothing items, including t-shirts, dresses, skirts, and activewear.

How is Knit Fabric Made?
Knit fabric is made using knitting machines, which are designed to interlock the yarns in a specific pattern. The yarn is fed through the machine, which then creates loops of yarn that are pulled through each other to create a continuous fabric. The pattern and size of the loops determine the thickness and stretchiness of the resulting fabric.

How is Knit Fabric Different from Woven Fabric?
The key difference between knit and woven fabric is in the way they are constructed. Woven fabrics are made by weaving yarns over and under each other on a loom. The resulting fabric is usually stiffer and less stretchy than knit fabric. Knit fabrics, on the other hand, are made by interlocking yarns together, resulting in a more flexible and stretchy fabric.
