The difference between knitted fabric and woven fabric

Knitted fabrics and woven fabrics have their own unique characteristics due to the different methods of weaving. In terms of processing technology, fabric structure, fabric characteristics, and finished product uses, we have some unique characteristics. Here are some comparisons.

(1) Composition of the fabric structure:

(A) Knitted fabric: the yarn is sequentially bent into loops, and the loops are interlaced to form a fabric, and the process of forming the loops of the yarn can be carried out horizontally or longitudinally. Called warp knitting.

(B) Woven fabric: It is a fabric composed of two or more sets of mutually perpendicular yarns interlaced at a 90-degree angle for warp and weft. The longitudinal yarn is called warp yarn and the transverse yarn is called weft yarn.

(2) Basic unit of fabric weave:

(A) Knitted fabric: The stitch is the smallest basic unit of the knitted fabric, and the stitch is composed of the loop and the extension line in a spatial curve.

(B) Woven fabric: every intersection point between warp yarn and weft yarn is called weave point, which is the smallest basic unit of woven fabric.

The above distinction between knitted fabrics and woven fabrics is provided by Hangzhou Mengda Industry Co., Ltd for everyone!
