Knit fabric is a very versatile fabric that can be used to make clothes that are hard wearing and easy to maintain (no ironing!). We have a range of good quality knits that will last and hold their shape through many washes, perfect!
A knit fabric is one that is made up of interlocking loops of fibres. This is different to woven fabric (like quilting cotton) which is made of fibres that are woven horizontally and vertically. Knit fabrics stretch because of the interlocking loops. They may stretch from every direction or they may only stretch in one direction.
