Sweater manufacturers know that the most obvious difference between woven and knitting is: woven is made by interweaving warp and weft, so there are two directions of warp and weft. But knitting is made up of a loop that is continuously tacked, so it has a certain degree of flexibility.
Woven fabric: It is a fabric made by interweaving the yarn in two directions perpendicular to each other. The longitudinal yarn is called warp yarn, and the horizontal yarn is called weft yarn.
Woven fabrics can generally be divided into machine-made fabrics and hand-woven fabrics. At present, they are all machine-made fabrics, and hand-woven fabrics are rare. According to the different processing technology, it is divided into several categories: bleached cloth, dyed cloth, printed cloth, yarn-dyed cloth, and so on.
Knitted fabrics are fabrics formed by bending yarns into loops with knitting needles and stringing them together. They are divided into warp knitted fabrics and weft knitted fabrics. Knitted fabrics have the characteristics of soft texture, moisture absorption, breathability, sweat-wicking, and warmth, and most of them have excellent elasticity and extensibility. Compared with woven fabric, it has the characteristics of high output and is suitable for small batch production. Knitted clothing is comfortable to wear, close to the body, without any sense of tightness, and can fully embody the curves of the human body.
