  • Description

    This fabric is produced by looping stitches in the cross-grain (weft) direction. It's most commonly used in sweater production, casual and dressy knits, and hand-knitting. Weft Knitting uses only two stitches: knit stitch & purl stitch.

    Single Knit fabric can be produced as a tube of fabric or flat yardage.

    Jersey is the most common single knit fabric, usually light-weight, jersey with one flat side and one piled side (Fine and medium gauge).

    Another common single knit fabric is the sweater knits (usually it's fine, medium, and big gauge)
