At present, most of China's fabrics are divided into knitted and woven. A woven fabric is a fabric formed by interlacing warp and weft perpendicularly to each other. Knitted fabrics are made by knitting needles to form yarns or filaments, and then stitching the coils to each other. However, there are still many people who do not distinguish between knitted fabrics and woven fabrics, so this article will introduce the difference between the two.

Difference 1: the structure of the fabric
At present, the knitted fabrics produced in China are generally bent into a coil in the order of the yarn, and the coils are sleeved to form a fabric, and the process of forming the stitches of the yarn can be carried out laterally or vertically, and the transverse weaving is called weft-knitted fabric. And the longitudinal weaving is called a warp knit.
On the contrary, the woven fabric is composed of two or more sets of mutually perpendicular yarns, which are woven into warp and weft at a 90 degree angle. The longitudinal yarn is called warp yarn, and the transverse yarn is called weft yarn.
Difference 2: basic unit of fabric organization
In general, the smallest unit of knitted fabric is the coil. The coil consists of a space curve formed by the circle and the extension line. In contrast, the smallest unit of the woven fabric is the tissue point, which is the intersection between the warp and the weft.
Difference three: physical mechanical
In general, the physical and mechanical properties of knitted fabrics are very good, including longitudinal density, transverse density, square gram weight, elongation properties, elasticity, breaking strength, abrasion resistance, curling, thickness, and dispersibility. Shrinkage, coverage, bulk density. In contrast, the physico-mechanical properties of the woven fabric include only the yarn density of the warp and weft yarns, the hem, the front and back, the reverse wool direction, and the fabric coverage.
