The difference between wool sweaters and knitwear:

First of all, the raw material, since it is a wool knitted sweater, the yarn contains at least animal hair (cow hair, wool, rabbit hair, etc.), which are classified as short fibers. The unit price of using animal hair alone is very high, so cotton or man-made fibers can be used to blend. The physical properties of medium and long fibers and short fibers are very different, and man-made fibers have a lot of added value, such as common functional fabrics: moisture wicking, sterilization and deodorization of far-infrared all belong to the knitted fabric yarn raw materials, yarn characteristics innately determine the characteristics of more than half of the finished wool knitwear.

Next is spinning. There are many processes, but good man-made materials are basically imitating the characteristics of natural animal hair or advanced cotton, for example, the same thickness of yarn may be 20 to 75 denier, which can contain two materials or even a variety of different characteristics of the material, the details will be very long, here first skip, there are really a lot of people want to understand then this topic can open a separate column. Spinning process is also very much, bulky yarn, air twist yarn, bamboo yarn, hollow yarn, OP yarn, coffee yarn ......

The principle is the same as when the mother knitted sweaters, but the use of mechanized production, with multiple needle arrangement combination of full, half and flat needles, with fine yarn knitting fine and dense pattern, can be interpreted as a single-sided fabric volume of handmade sweaters is proportionally reduced by 10 times to 100 times, the line pattern or those patterns, just more mini and less recognizable. The thread pattern is still the same, just more mini and less recognizable. The color of the knitted fabric is determined by the yarn used.

2, What is the difference between knitwear and cashmere sweaters, and which is warmest?



The yarn used in knitwear is wool, cashmere, rabbit hair, mink hair, mohair, etc. The price of pure animal hair is very high, and chemical fiber materials are added in the process. Cotton knitwear is made of cotton yarn, which is made from cotton and other plant fibers, and chemical fiber materials are added to improve the characteristics of knitwear.

For the two words knitted sweater and sweater, knitted sweater is more on the production process, while the word sweater is more on the production of raw materials. In general, sweater belongs to woolen knitted sweater, which is a kind of knitted sweater. What we normally call sweater mainly highlights the clothes knitted with wool, while knitted sweater is a very specialized craft concept. General underwear, cotton sportswear, socks, etc. can be considered as knitted category.

The difference between knitwear and sweaters is also reflected in the knitting technique.

Sweaters are knitted by hand or by machine.

Knitwear is knitted using knitting equipment. The difference between a knit sweater and a sweater is also in the material used.

Sweaters use wool, while knitwear uses a wide range of threads. It can be divided into two kinds of materials: one is artificial, such as rayon, rayon, nylon, etc.; the other is natural, such as wool, rabbit hair, cashmere, camel hair, silk, bamboo fiber, etc. In addition, in terms of price, the difference between knitted sweaters and sweaters is also relatively obvious.

Since sweaters use mostly natural wool, the price is slightly higher. Knitwear, on the other hand, is made from a wide variety of raw materials and has a wide variety of styles, so its price varies depending on the material.




Yarn is a textile product made from various textile fibers of a certain fineness and is used for weaving, rope making, thread making, knitting and embroidery, etc. It is divided into short fiber yarn and continuous filament yarn. The fineness of yarn is expressed in various ways, such as number, metric count, imperial count, denier, etc. (see Count). The twist of a yarn is expressed in terms of the number of twist returns per meter or inch. Woolen yarn and woolen thread are generally used for weaving woolen sweaters, woolen pants, woolen undershirts, scarves, hats and gloves and knitting various spring and autumn clothing items, in addition to warmth and decoration.


Knitted Fabric

Knitted fabric is the use of knitting needles to bend the yarn into a circle and mutual series set and formed fabric, divided into warp knitted fabric and weft knitted fabric. Knitted fabric has a soft texture, moisture absorption and breathability, sweat and warmth, and most of them have excellent elasticity and extensibility. Relative to woven fabric it has the characteristics of high production, suitable for small batch production. Knitted garments are comfortable to wear, close to the body, no sense of constraint, and can fully reflect the human body curve.



Knitwear is a product of the process of using knitting needles to form loops of various raw materials and varieties of yarns, which are then connected into knitted fabrics by string sets, i.e., clothing knitted with knitting needles. Its texture is soft, has good wrinkle resistance and breathability, and has greater extensibility and elasticity, and is comfortable to wear.
