Knit fabrics are mainly constructed by interloping one or more sets of fiber or yarn. The most common examples of clothing utilizing knit fabric are socks. Knitting has a versatile manufacturing process. As an entire product could manufacture on a single knitting machine.

Knitting is much faster than weaving. Due to the looping, more yarn is required to manufacture a knitted product than a comparable woven product. Knits are very comfortable fabrics. The loop structure of the knit fabric contributes to elasticity beyond what is capable of the fibers alone. It’s prone to snagging and has a higher potential shrinkage than a woven.
