Today, knitwear products are very popular - socks, underwear and children, as well as many other elements of the wardrobe are widely demanded by buyers.
Knitted things favorably on things from other tissues near certain qualities.
But what are they like?
Translated from the French word "jersey"It means "to bind." Knitwear is called a product or fabric, knitted from yarn on knitting machines or manually. The first knitting has appeared in the 16th century, and since then knitted things took a strong position in people's lives. After the invention of a machine for knitting, knitted fabric and finished goods for sewing them started to produce in large quantities and wide range.
Knitwear made from cotton, wool or synthetic fibers of various thicknesses and combinations.
From knitted fabrics, different in composition,produce certain types of products. There is a uniform or mixed material, which vary in composition, which includes one or more raw material. Virtually all modern jersey is mixed - it adds synthetic fibers that improve the consumer characteristics of knitwear. By way of tying it can be a double, relief, kulirnym, poperechnovyazanym or warp.
The quality of the knitted fabric is determined by itsthe main characteristics and properties - geometrical parameters weave their fineness and surface structure. Overall quality is also knitted by the physical and mechanical properties, as well as the number of stitches per unit length in different directions. The thickness of the knitted article directly depends on the surface density.
The surface density is usually greater in the high things of knitwear and knitted underwear at least.
Mechanical properties determine knitwearset of elasticity, resilience, tensile, abrasion, tear strength, and zakruchivaemosti raspuskaemosti. Extensibility is completely dependent on the type of knitted fabric weave structure and hinges. Most expandable view of knitwear - poperechnovyazany. On the elasticity and flexibility of the web is largely influenced by the form of raw materials and weave - the more the score, the higher resistance to abrasion knitwear and shape retention. Most considered elastic knitted from wool yarn and textured yarn.
On knitwear and abrasion resistanceaffect the form and type of weave of the fiber - the least stable are vorsovanny and wool jersey. The most abrasion resistant knitted of synthetic fibers.
