What is knitted fabric? The advantages and disadvantages of knitted fabrics?

        Knitted fabrics are fabrics formed by bending yarns into loops with knitting needles and stringing them together. The difference between knitted fabrics and woven fabrics is the shape of the yarn in the fabric. Knitting is divided into weft knitting and warp knitting. 

       At present, knitted fabrics are widely used in clothing fabrics and linings, home textiles and other products, and are favored by consumers. Knitted fabric has good elasticity, moisture absorption, breathability, comfort and warmth. It is the most widely used fabric for children's clothing. The raw materials are mainly natural fibers such as cotton, linen, silk and wool. There are also chemical fiber knitted fabrics such as nylon, acrylic and polyester. 

       With its unique appearance, it used to be mostly used in underwear, T-shirts, etc. Now, with the development of the knitting industry and the birth of new finishing processes, the wearability of knitted fabrics has been greatly improved, and it is suitable for almost all categories of children's clothing.


        The advantages of knitted fabrics: soft texture, moisture absorption and breathability, excellent elasticity and extensibility, and manufacturability. Knitted clothing is comfortable to wear, fits snugly, has no sense of tightness, and can fully embody the curves of the human body.

        The disadvantages of knitted fabrics are that they are easy to fall off, curl up, and snag, and are not as strong and durable as woven fabrics.
