Warp knitting and weft knitting in knitting

There are many kinds of knitted fabrics, such as jacquard fabrics, thick terry, polyester linen, etc. Everyone knows that knitting has warp knitting and weft knitting. But do you know the difference between the two? I'll tell you today!

Warp knitting uses a plurality of yarns that are simultaneously looped in sequence along the longitudinal ( warp ) direction of the cloth cover.

Weft knitting uses one or more yarns to loop in sequence along the transverse direction ( weft ) of the department.

Weft knitted fabrics can be formed with at least one yarn, but in order to improve production efficiency, multiple yarns are generally used for knitting. However, warp knitted fabrics cannot be formed with a single yarn, and a single yarn can only form a single loop.

All weft-knitted fabrics can be unwound into threads against the knitting direction, but warp-knitted fabrics cannot.

Warp knitted fabrics cannot be knitted by hand.

Warp - knitted fabrics fall into two main categories:

One is Raschel fabric, which is mainly characterized by large flower shape, coarse and thin cloth cover and many eyelets, and is mainly used as decorative fabric.

Secondly, tricol fabric, with fine cloth cover and few colors, has a high yield and is mainly used for coating fabrics and printed fabrics. This kind of fabric is mostly used for chemical fiber filaments, otherwise the production efficiency is extremely low.
