The fabric of the knitted sweater is knitted fabric. Knitted fabrics are fabrics formed by bending yarns into loops with knitting needles and interlocking them with each other. Kid's knitted sweaters are very popular among parents. Below we mainly introduce the fabric types of knitted sweaters to help you choose the right knitted sweater for your child.

Knitted fabric type

Knitted fabrics are divided into weft knitted fabrics and warp knitted fabrics according to the different ways of yarn stringing.

Weft knitted fabric:

Weft knitted fabric composition: low-elastic polyester yarn, special-shaped polyester yarn, nylon yarn, cotton yarn, wool yarn, etc. Among them, Hong Kong-type knitted woolen fabric has good drape and is often used as the fashion fabric, and velvet knitted fabric is also a leader in fabrics.

Weft knitted fabrics generally have good elasticity and extensibility, the fabrics are soft, firm, and wrinkle-resistant, have a strong wool feel, and are easy to wash and quick-dry. However, its hygroscopicity is poor, the fabric is not stiff enough, and it is easy to fall off and curl.

Warp knitted fabrics:

The composition of warp knitted fabrics: polyester, nylon, nylon, polypropylene, and other synthetic filaments, or cotton, wool, silk, hemp, chemical fiber, and their blended yarns. The surface of the warp-knitted velvet fabric is densely piled and feels very good.

Warp knitted fabric has the advantages of stable structure, good longitudinal dimensional stability, stiff fabric, small detachment, no curling, and good air permeability.

What kind of fabric is better for knitted sweaters?

What kind of fabric is better for a knitted sweater. Generally, the composition of cotton is a little more, and the composition of Lycra is less. This kind of fabric is more comfortable, breathable, and beautiful to wear on the body.

Children's knitted sweaters are cotton or wool sweaters

Sweaters are better. Generally speaking, sweaters should be warmer because the material of sweaters is high-heat and the styles of sweaters are very tight, so they are very close to the body, so they will be warmer than others.

What kind of fabric is good for knitwear? How to choose the right knitted sweater

1. Wool

Wool is a natural fiber of animal hair fiber. Chemical fibers are chemical fibers. Wool fiber has natural curl, long fiber, and scales on the surface, which is conducive to fiber cohesion during spinning. The fiber is fluffy and contains air with low thermal conductivity, so it has excellent heat retention. The fabric is stiff and wrinkle-free, highly hygroscopic, and has good plasticity. The characteristic of wool fibers is that they are milled.

2. Cotton

Benefits: ①Hygroscopic ②Moisturizing ③Heat resistance ④Alkali resistance ⑤Hygienic.

Disadvantage: But it is easy to wrinkle, shrink, deform easily, and it is difficult to smooth after wrinkling.

3. Mulberry silk

Mulberry silk is a natural animal protein fiber and the most important raw material for silk weaving. Smooth, soft, shiny, with a feeling of hot in winter and cool in summer, a unique "silk call" phenomenon when rubbed, good extensibility, good heat resistance, not resistant to saltwater corrosion, not suitable for chlorine bleaching agent or detergent treatment.

4. Pure wool

Mulberry silk has the advantages of good elasticity, strong hygroscopicity, and good heat retention.

5. Acrylic fiber

Acrylic has the reputation as synthetic wool, and its elasticity and bulk are similar to natural wool. Therefore, the heat retention of its fabric is not lower than that of wool fabrics, even about 15% higher than that of similar wool fabrics.

Elasticity: Its elasticity is better, second only to polyester, and about 2 times higher than nylon. Has better shape retention.

Strength: Although the strength of the acrylic fiber is not as good as that of polyester and nylon, it is 1 to 2.5 times higher than wool.

Heat resistance: The softening temperature of the fiber is 190-230C, second only to polyester among synthetic fibers.

Lightfastness: The lightfastness of acrylic fiber is the best among all synthetic fibers for one year of open-air exposure, with only a 20% drop in strength.

Acrylic fabrics have poor hygroscopicity, are easily stained, and feel stuffy when wearing, but their dimensional stability is good.

The above introduces the problems related to children's knitwear. I hope it can help you better choose the right knitwear for your child. If you have any questions or plan to buy children's knitwear, please contact us.
