China Pigment Printing Fabric Manufacturers introduces the use of knitted cotton:
The appearance of knitted cotton is like pure cotton, and cotton fibers have good hygroscopicity. Under normal circumstances, cotton fibers can absorb moisture in the air, which is why knitted cotton and pure cotton can make people feel when they wear them. Very comfortable. Pure cotton refers to the cotton content of the fabric; knitting refers to the production process, which includes: pure cotton knitting, nylon knitting, etc., but the heat resistance effect of pure cotton fabrics is better. Knitted cotton has a smooth surface because of the use of textile technology. Compared with pure cotton, it is not easy to pilling. Generally, knitted fabrics are relatively soft and feel good to the touch. It is easy to deform when pulled a little. Many underwear vests are made of knitted cotton. The pure cotton that does not indicate knitting can generally be understood as cloth. It has a harder feel, has stiffness, has no ductility, and is not easy to deform. Generally, some fabric cheongsams are made of this kind, and it is easy to identify by the feel.
Knitted cotton is a cloth woven with a circular machine. The fabric is elastic and soft to the touch. It is mostly used to make T-shirts and underwear cotton, sportswear, etc. From the characteristics of knitted cotton and pure cotton fabrics: knitted cotton is characterized by good dyeability, high color brightness and fastness, and the wearing comfort and hygroscopicity are very close to those of pure cotton. The disadvantage is that it is not acid-resistant and has poor elasticity. Pure cotton is characterized by good moisture absorption and high wearing comfort.
In terms of material selection, there is no difference between the two fabrics. Knitted cotton is actually made of cotton thread through knitting technology. It is all due to cotton, both of which are comfortable and healthy to wear, so there is not much difference between the two fabrics. The difference is that knitted cotton has a very good dyeing technology. As for the quality of the dyeing process, it is another matter. Both of these fabrics are made of cotton, and the difference in technology and the surface of the fabric is only the difference in comfort and moisture absorption.
