Fabric University, knowledge to make informed fabric decisions
Fabric University | Knit Construction Resource |
Sweater Knit & Yarn Resource

Knitted fabric is produced by a knitting process of intersecting loops of yarn in a horizontal (weft) direction or in a vertical (weft) direction. Therefore, all knitted fabrics can be divided into two primary classes—weft knits , and warp knits . Generally, warp knit fabrics tend to be stretchier in the width, while weft knit fabrics tend to have more spring back in both width and length.

A row of knitted loops is called a course. A column of loops is known as a wale. The number of courses and wales per inch or unit length, and the total number of loops per unit area are directly related to the fabric quality. The higher the number in each group, the better the fabric.
