Woven VS Knitted Fabrics
Woven fabrics are constructed by the interlacing of twoor more sets of yarns, which does not allow the fabricto stretch to any marked degree unless it is speciallystretch-woven.
If a certain amount of stretching is necessary, wovenfabric must be cut on the biasthat is, in a diagonaldirection.
Even then the fabric can be stretched only in thedirection of the diagonal cutting.
The advantage of stretch ability in knitted fabrics is animportant consideration where fit and comfort areconcernedthey fit the figure but do not bind it.
