advantage
①Scalability. Knitted fabrics are made of yarns that are bent into loops and interspersed with each other. The loops have a large room for expansion and contraction. Therefore, they have good elasticity, fit and carry on the body when wearing, comfortable and convenient, suitable for stretching when the human body moves. Bending and other requirements.
②Softness. The raw materials used in knitted garment fabrics are fluffy and soft yarns with low twist. The surface of the fabric has a layer of tiny suede, and the tissue composed of loops is loose and porous, which reduces the friction between the skin and the surface of the fabric during wearing. Gives a sense of comfort and tenderness.
③Hygroscopicity and air permeability. Because the loops that make up the knitted fabric are intertwined, numerous isolated air pockets are formed inside the fabric, which has good warmth retention and air permeability.
④ Anti-wrinkle. When the knitted fabric is subjected to a wrinkle external force, the loop can be transferred to adapt to the deformation when the force is applied; when the wrinkle force disappears, the transferred yarn can quickly recover and maintain the original state.

Disadvantage
①Weft knitted fabrics are easy to disperse. When the yarn on the knitted fabric breaks or the loop loses the connection between the loops, causing the loops to separate, the loops will fall apart in the longitudinal direction, which affects the appearance and strength of the fabric. You can choose a structure that is resistant to dispersal, or use yarns with high friction coefficient and high bending rigidity as raw materials to overcome this shortcoming.
②Poor dimensional stability. In addition to chemical fiber knitwear, other knitwear has different degrees of shrinkage.
③Easy to snag, fuzz and pilling. Due to the loose structure of knitted fabrics, during processing and use, the fibers on the fabric are easily hooked out by sharp objects to form silk loops. At the same time, the fibers are often fuzzed due to abrasion. In this way, it will directly affect the functional performance.
