Knitting is a process in which three different yarn sources are used to form a fabric. There are warp (machine direction) yarns, weft (cross direction) yarns and a stitch yarn that is used to tie the warp and weft yarns together. The result is a high-strength fabric that is typically coated to provide further stability.

This process can be done with various input yarns and yarn spacing, and the addition of a substrate, if desired.

Features and benefits include:

  • Fabric is both mechanically and chemically bonded, so it is very stable and not subject to “stringing” or unraveling
  • Wide range of input yarn weights and spacing allows for flexibility in terms of “openness” and weight of fabric
  • Flatter profile, less crimp than woven products
  • Yarns are mechanically bonded, allowing for a more uniform appearance and mesh pattern than laid scrim
