Knitted fabrics and woven fabrics have obvious differences in the production process, different methods will naturally bring different effects. The characteristics of knitted fabrics and woven fabrics also agree to be different. Most people may not pay much attention to whether the fabric is knitted or woven. In fact, knitted fabric and woven fabric are very different. If we observe carefully and have a certain understanding of these fabrics, we can find out the difference. Perhaps this will have a certain impact on our lives.

Process difference between knitted fabric and woven fabric

To understand the difference between the two, one should understand the basic procedures of the two. Knitted fabric is a fabric fabric in which yarns are bent into loops in sequence, and then the loops are intertwined with each other. And according to the different directions of the stitch weaving, it can be classified. The horizontal direction is called weft knitting, and the vertical direction is called warp knitting. The woven fabric is a fabric formed by vertically interweaving two or more vertical yarns by a shuttle machine. Yarns in different directions can be divided into different types, the transverse direction is called weft yarn, and the longitudinal direction is called warp yarn. The basic unit of knitted fabric is the loop, while the basic unit of the woven fabric is the point of weave where the warp and weft intersect.

Weaving difference between knitted fabric and woven fabric

Next, we should talk about the different characteristics of knitting and woven weave. The knitted fabric is formed by a hole-shaped coil, which has better air permeability, more uniform extension in all directions, better elasticity, and softer feel. The height and width of the coil can be switched between each other, so its extensibility is better. In addition, the knitted fabric is more comfortable to wear on the body, does not feel constrained and tight, and can fully reflect the curvy beauty of the human body. Woven fabric is relatively light, the relationship between weft yarn extension and shrinkage is not large, and there is no conversion, and the extensibility is relatively poor. This fabric is generally dense and hard, not as soft as knitted. Woven fabrics are relatively strong and wear-resistant, and are produced in large quantities in garments.
