What Are the Two Types of Knitted Fabric?

There are two types of knitted fabric.

Weft Knits

Weft knits are created by interlocking loops of yarn by hand or machine. They are softer, stretchier, and more flexible than other fabrics, making them the ideal choice for many garments. Weft knits are usually used for sweaters, shirts, and socks. Unfortunately, they can be fragile as they are prone to unraveling.

Warp Knits

Created using a machine, warp knits are more stable than weft knits and are less prone to stretching or sagging because of their tighter weave. Warp knits are also less bulky and are resistant to running.

What Is Knit Fabric Best Used For?

Knit fabrics are perfect for creating exciting and unique pieces and are ideal for making casual garments such as dresses, skirts, pants, and tops. However, they are becoming more popular for formal wear because they are comfortable and resistant to wrinkles.

Novelty knits are also fantastic for making scarves, hats, bags, and more!

What Are the Benefits of Knit Fabrics?

Knit fabrics have a variety of factors that make them suitable for many projects:

  • Flexible: Knits are flexible and versatile. They are easy to shape and manipulate, making them perfect for any garment or project.
  • Breathable: Knits are breathable and lightweight, making them great for everyday wear, exercise gear, and hot weather clothing.
  • Durable: Knits are also incredibly durable, making them an excellent choice for pieces you want to last for a long time.
  • Stretchable: Knits can stretch and move with your body. Their elasticity allows them to go back to their original shape.
  • Comfortable: Knits are soft and comfortable, and enable unrestrained movements for creating garments you can wear all day long.
  • Wrinkle-resistant: Knits are wrinkle-resistant and hold up well against wear and tear. That's why they're famous for making great new date night outfits.
  • Easy to care for: Knits are easy to maintain and don't require special cleaning instructions. They are usually machine washable and can be tumble-dried.
