Knit fabric –
- a type of fabric made of interlocking loops of thread
Woven fabrics are woven – as the name implies, they’re made by weaving over and under warp and weft threads to make a fabric with little to no stretch. Knit fabrics, in contrast, are made on a knitting machine using interlocking loops of thread. These fabrics have much more stretch to them as a result, and are often used in garments such as tops and skirts.
