The rib knitting has greater extensibility and elasticity, and has detachability and curling. Rib knitting knitted fabrics are widely used in inner and outer clothing products that require greater elasticity and extensibility, such as the production of stretch shirts, stretch vests, swimwear, and necklines, cuffs, trousers, socks, and hem in clothing.

Polyester cover cotton

Cotton wool


The double rib knitting is composed of two rib weaves compounded with each other, which is a variation of the double-sided weft knitted weft. Commonly known as cotton wool tissue. Double rib knitting is less extensible and elastic than rib weave. The double rib weave has little detachment, and only detaches in the reverse knitting direction. Double rib weave without hemming. Smooth surface and good heat retention. Double rib knitted fabrics generally use yarn twist less than jersey, which increases the softness of the fabric. The fabric is flat and has a clear texture, but not as elastic as rib knits. It can be used to sew cotton sweater pants, sweatshirt pants, outerwear, vests, etc.
