Knitted vs. woven fabrics

Ever wondered what the difference is between knitted or woven fabrics? Fabrics consist of natural and artificial yarns. They are formed by weaving, knotting, knitting or other methods. The fibers can be made from various sources such as plants (cotton), animals (wool), or synthetic material (such as polyester). At the textile wholesaler Knipidee you can filter the entire fabric collection on knitted (knitted) or woven (woven) fabrics. But what exactly are the differences between the two? In this article we will cover this subject.

Top 3 differences between knitted and woven:
• Knitted fabric consists of one yarn, woven fabric by multiple yarns in crisscross patterns
• Woven fabric does not stretch across the width, but along the length. Knitted fabrics stretch easily across the width and slightly lengthwise
• Knitted fabrics keep their shape when pressed, while woven fabrics show the folds on the surface when pressed.
