Do you know the difference between knitting and woven fabrics?
People often ask me what kind of fabric this is?
✓According to textile technology
Woven: It is woven with two yarns in the warp and weft directions criss-crossing
Knitting: It is made of one yarn It is interwoven like a knitted sweater
The composition of the fabrics varies with the grade
Special grade fabrics: cashmere, heavy silk , mink…
High-end fabrics: mulberry silk, wool…
Mid-to-high-end fabrics: high-grade acetic acid, cupro, mercerized cotton…
Mid-range fabrics: linen, Tencel, Modal and other synthetic fibers
Ordinary fabrics: cotton, blended weaving, PU.. .
Low-grade fabrics: polyester, chemical fiber (polyester fiber)
✓By gram weight
This is relatively easy to confuse and needs to be carefully screened. Example:
Silk: The bigger and heavier the Moomi, the better, such as: 12mm, 16mm, 26mm, 30mm
Cashmere: the same thickness, the lighter the weight, the higher the quality
✓According to yarn count specifications
Our previous notes have introduced this separately, the finer the yarn weave The requirements for textile technology are becoming more and more sophisticated, and now 80-count and 100-count fabrics are no longer common on the market.
It actually means a bit of regional discrimination, but it is actually very particular. For example, Xinjiang long-staple cotton is relatively better than ordinary cotton due to the geographical location and sunlight; to Australian wool, Merino The same is true for wool, etc. Because resources are scarce, output is small, and quality is high, so the price goes up. However, we must know how to distinguish such factors that are unique to certain places and not just hearsay.
Finally, I would like to say something special:
A. All the ingredients can be made into knitted or woven fabrics, but the textile process is different during weaving.
B. Although fabrics are classified according to grade, they cannot be generalized. For example, certain processes of polyester can also make it look high-end. Something simple like a pleated skirt or something.
Last point, don’t be obsessed with imported fabrics. Many domestic fabrics are also very fragrant, such as cloud yarn and so on.
