What is the difference between knitted fabric and woven fabric? Although knitted fabric and woven fabric are only one word different, they are still very different. What is the difference, mainly from the composition of fabric and the basic characteristics of fabric. The details are as follows:
What is the difference between knitted fabric and woven fabric?
1、 Fabric composition:
Knitted fabric: the loop is the smallest basic unit of knitted fabric, and the loop consists of a space curve of loop drying and extension line. The coils are connected with each other to form fabric, and the process of yarn forming coil can be carried out horizontally or vertically. The horizontal knitting is called weft knitting fabric, while the vertical knitting is called warp knitting fabric.
Woven fabric (woven fabric): it is made of two groups of mutually vertical yarns interwoven with 90 degree angle as warp and weft. The longitudinal yarn is called warp and the transverse yarn is called weft. Every intersection point between warp and weft is called weave point, which is the smallest basic unit of woven fabric.
2、 Basic characteristics of fabric:
Knitted fabric: because the coil is made of yarn bent in space, and each coil is composed of one yarn. When the knitted fabric is subject to external tension, such as longitudinal tension, the bending of the coil changes, while the height of the coil increases, while the width of the coil decreases. If the tension is transverse tension, on the contrary, the height and width of the coil are obviously different under different tension conditions Can transform each other, so the stretch of knitted fabric is large. It has great air permeability and soft handle.
Woven fabric (woven fabric): due to the warp and weft interweave some bending, and only bending in the direction perpendicular to the fabric plane, its bending degree is related to the tension between the warp and weft, as well as the yarn rigidity. When the woven fabric is subject to external tension, such as longitudinal tension, the warp tension increases, the bending decreases, while the weft bending increases, such as longitudinal tension Stretch continuously until the warp is fully extended and the fabric shrinks laterally. When the woven fabric is stretched laterally by external tension, the tension of the weft increases, the bending decreases, and the warp bending increases. For example, the horizontal stretching does not stop until the weft is fully stretched, and the fabric shrinks longitudinally. The warp and weft will not change, so the fabric is usually tight and hard.
